Carolling Chickens

Today's card is a rather untraditional Christmas card...I've used my Penny Black 'Carolers' stamp...I just love the Penny Black chickens, and was tempted to use this today by the yummy Ribbon Reel prize on offer over at the Daring Cardmakers this week! lol The funky coloured 'Christmas Fancy' papers by Dovecraft...I distressed all of the edges, and added some faux stitching around the edges of the papers using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowflakes were cut from kraft card using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables dies, adding some brightly coloured buttons from my stash to their centres.
