Birthday card for a Chook Girl

Thankfully this card did arrive OK and on time, so I can post about it now:
I used:

- 7" x 5" white card stock

- 'Happy Birthday' backing paper from the snippets folder

- turquoise card stock, again from the snippets folder

- image is Penny Black 'Coop Party', coloured with Pro Markers then little punched butterflies and some pearls added

- a snippet of lemon ribbon, topped with a bow then bows of green and turquoise cord with a butterfly charm

- flower made using one of my very first die sets by 'Joy!' called 'Daisies', fastened together with a green SU 'Everyday Enchantment' brad (thank you again Victoria) and the leaves punched with a Carl Craft punch and a teeny snippet of green

Hope you had a lovely day 'Chook Girl' :)

And hope everyone has a great weekend, it's raining in the Playground here though.

Great card Di, perfect for the birthday girl if my guess who it's for is correct.

Adore the chicken stamps, they are so funny.

It's raining on our veranda too, have a good weekend whatever the weather.

Big hugs xx
