Cluck, Cluck, Cluck!

It's my Dad's birthday today, and this is the card that I made for my Mum to give to him. He has a bit of a thing for chickens, so I used my Penny Black 'Cluck, Cluck, Cluck!' stamp (I masked off the chicken carrying flowers before stamping). I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then added a sentiment made up from stamps from the Paula Pascual 'Big Messages' set and the 'You & I' set by Clearly Besotted. The papers are from the 'Recollections - Charming' pad by Michaels...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.
