Happy First Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challenge of May!  
Wow - can you believe it's already May?!  

Well, today to get the month kicked off, we're going to give you quite the challenge...

"Don't PUNCH Me!!!"

What's that mean??  NO PUNCHES and NO DIE CUTS

And on top of this little challenge, 
we're featuring the "CHICK" digi.
You may have seen this cute little fellow's sister all dolled up for Easter, but today we have not just your average chick, but one that is equally as cute for many, many creative possibilities!

Here is how I interpreted the challenge, using the Chick image:

Here is a close-up of the image:

I coloured the image using alcohol markers and purposely let the ink 'bleed' to give the chick a fluffy appearance.  The sentiment is  my own, and computer generated.  As embellishments I used three black stick on gems and a black organza bow.
You'll notice that I used no dies or punches to inspire you to enter our challenge at Shelly's Images
