Belated Little Easter Chick (or Duck?)

I know this is running about a month behind...but, better late than never, right? This sweet little chick made the perfect greeting card for my college kids' care packages. This is yet another design idea I stole borrowed from Stampin' Connection, which is an exclusive free forum for sharing ideas that you can access once you Become a Demonstrator!

This card features the Owl Builder Punch. I trimmed the ear tufts off the top corners of the punched body, for the main piece. I also cut the feet from the body and punched another body out in orange, then stuck those orange feet behind the body shape. I saved one of the little yellow feet I cut off, to use as the feather tuft atop the chick's head. For the wings, I used the "vest" shape from the punch, and cut that in half. Then I tucked a half of the vest under each side of the body. For the nose/beak, I punched out the heart shape, but trimmed the top flat. The eyes were punched from black, but instead of trying to glue tiny white dots onto that, I simply used the White Gel Pen to mark them in place.

ALTERNATE IDEA: I think you could use this card for a new baby by making the chick into a duck. All you need to do is round the end of the beak, and then make the feet triangles (by trimming off the top of the heart shape from the punched image). You might want to slide the wings down a little bit, too.
