Hi Lisa Lara here today. 
 Happy Saturday, one day before the Super Bowl. 
I have a fun card to share with you today that uses the "masking" technique .  
I also played in two challenges:

 I used just the sketch (isn't it a fun sketch?). 
So I took the above sketch and made it go over the edge by cutting my card down by 3/8"

I made my own little chicks using circle dies and using tape to mask off the body of the chick from the {Egg}cellent stamp set (the one that stands by itself) so I only stamped the face on my circles.  Then I embossed them for that dimension.

I also used the same technique to create my sentiment.  
I first stamped "peep" from  the {Egg}cellent stamp set   Then took the word "school" from the Teacher Teacher set and masked off all but the "s" and stamped it to make "peeps".  I then took the word "best" also from the Teacher Teacher set and stamped it above to get "best peeps" for a punny sentiment for my whimsical card.

How creative and so much fun .... your adorable chicks really caught my eye as they "peeped" over the grass! Love the dimension you achieved with the distressed stripes embossing folder and the grass punch.
