Four Challenges in One...

I've followed the sketch from the Sketch & Stash Challenge for this card...and have managed to include the themes of a few other challenges too...Cupcake Craft asked us to use numbers on our cards (they are on the paper); the Daring Cardmakers wanted 'Farmyard Animals' so I've given them a chicken; and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge was to use at least three different shapes...and I've managed to get squares, rectangles, triangles and a star on this card. My main image is 'Party Perch' by Penny Black...which I've had for ages, but can't remember the last time I inked it up, and my new item is the sentiment stamp (from the 'Kids Quotes' set by Inkadinkado). The papers are all from the 'Cupcakes' pad by BasicGrey, and the star was cut using a Nestie die.
