Watch Out For Those Chickens


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostess for July, Shirley Quarry continues to  bring us fun challenges.

This week’s challenge is "Watch out for those chickens" - make a card that has a chicken theme.


I have been seeing these type of chicken shaped cards on Pinterest for a while now and I have been wanting to create one so this was the perfect opportunity.


I found a pattern to create the chicken on Paper Cookies blog here.


Of course I couldn’t just leave my card as a shaped card, I had to put a pop up inside using the Lucy Labels Pop Up Card set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.


Here is another view of the inside of my card. The sentiments are from Paper Pretties.
