Chicken Dance Birthday

If you'd like to hear the Chicken Dance song while you are reading, click HERE  :)

This card is for my future daughter-in-law's (woo hoo) birthday.

I've had this stamp set from Penny Black for a long time, and  haven't really used it -- but I love it.  It actually has 4 chickens on it, but I covered the 4th chicken (that was carrying a bouquet of flowers) with post-its before I inked the stamp.  This way it fit the design of the sketch I was following.

I really like the design of this CAS Colours & Sketches sketch.

And the colors from Color Throwdown

Now, I am NOT a fast crafter -- a card takes me hours sometimes.  But I have to say I am quite happy to report that this card from start to finish (once I found this sketch !!) took me less than an hour to create -- including the inside.  I knew from my other card, that I love the colors from Color Throwdown - so all I needed to do was to find a paper pack with these colors (My Mind's Eye).

I colored the chickens with some Inktense pencils and water.
The "happy" was die cut (from MFT ?) and the birthday is from PaperTrey Ink.  And it was done.

Thanks so much for looking - I'm off to bake brownies for a family BBQ.  I hope you are having an awesome day.
