Celebration Chicken!

After a couple of days of no crafting...I just had to get my fingers inky...and have made a quick card. I followed Carol's Sketch Fun sketch for the layout, flipping it, as it suited my image better this way around. I used 'Celebration Chicken' (by Whipper Snapper) as my image...colouring him to match the Fancy Pants Designs papers ('True'). I added some buttons in place of the scalloped border, and the sentiment is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts. I'm also entering this card for a few other challenges: Stamp Something's 'Winged Things' challenge; Everybody Art Challenge's 'Spots & Stripes' challenge; and the Pink Elephant's 'Animals' challenge.
