Ink the edges of the pink polka dot paper and the white card base. Adhere pink polka dot paper to the front of the card. Using a hot glue gun glue a strip of light blue feather boa to the bottom of the card. Next, use the Vintage Photo ink pad and a small paint brush or dauber to ink the edges of the chick and color in the feet using the same ink. Add the googly eye to the chick and color in it's beak with orange Stickles. Using scissors carefully cut a jagged area out of the book page egg to resemble a cracked egg. Using the teal/turquoise ink lightly ink the edges of the the same egg and lightly drag across the top of the egg coloring in to the desired shade. Add spots of light purple ink to give a more mottled look. Squirt a dab of purple Stickles on your finger and blend in to the egg to add sheen. Cut the green polka dotted egg in half adding jagged edges to resemble a cracked egg and then ink with Vintage Photo ink. Place random pop dots under the egg pieces and chick and adhere to the card front using the sample photo for placement - you may need to use a dab of hot glue for the green polka dotted egg resting on the feathers. Add the words "so last year" and a blue flower or flower of your choice to the upper left corner of the card.
