Hey Chick for Lili of the Valley

Hello lovely peeps.

Here's my second LOTV Design Collective card for February.

I've used papers from the 'Sunny Side Up' 8x8 pad (retired) and the chicken from Little Critters - Hey Chick
 Obviously she has to have a name. She looks like a Matilda to me, I'm going to call her Tilly for short.

First I made my main background by painting white gesso onto some Kraft card with a damp paintbrush, which I then left to dry.
Next I coloured Tilly in with Promarkers
(Poppy, Daffodil, Tulip, Almond, Putty & Blender)

I die-cut a plain and scalloped circle from two of the papers to give Tilly a frame to sit in and then covered up her nest with some raffia. The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts (Foundation White Blooms) and I've just added red adhesive gems in the centres (Kanban)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
