A card for a friend who keeps chickens!



I made this card last week for a very special friend but our paths haven't crossed until tonight. She keeps chickens so I thought this was just the right image! It's a Saturated Canary image by Krista Smith called Murray who, as you can see, also keeps chickens!

I coloured her with Promarkers, but unfortunately I can't find the list. I'm usually dissatisfied by my hair colouring, but this time I think I've almost cracked it. We Shall See!

The papers are Nitwits Bees Knees Collection. The colours are so pretty, for once I chose the papers first and then matched the Promarkers. I know that's what you're supposed to do, but I'm rarely that organised!!

The corners are cut and embossed with Spellbinders Floral doily set, the card is cheap'n'cheerful gold card for children's crafts which came from our lovely Art and Craft shop which closed 2 years ago - I miss it so much :( But I think my bank manager is quite happy that it closed lol!

The gingham ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is a new Girlie Banner by LotV with the flourish trimmed off.

I'm entering the Sketch Saturday challenge because this great sketch is from Sketch Saturday though I've replaced the three spots below the image with the banner, so I hope that counts!

Right, it's past time I went to bed. Not long till the weekend, guys!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
