Funny Eggs

Another easter card. Another one, that once I started I just couldn't stop.

These hens are a Penny Black stamp called Funny Eggs. I love the Penny Black
stamps, I have quite a few of them. I haven't been using my other stamps much
since I have started doing SU, so I've decided for every SU card I make I have
to follow up with a non SU card. Mmmm we'll see, you all know how well I am
at keeping up with things, but I'll be giving it a go.

So here is my first. I had so much fun making this card. The egg behind the hens was stamped on DCWV Glitter stack DP (another thing I need to start using up, my non SU DP! LOL) using the egg from the SU set a Good Egg, along with the ditty at the top, "You Crack Me UP". The little butterfly is also a Penny Black stamp. The flowers are left over from a card I made last year and are from the Su set One of a kind, and punched out using the matching punch. As you can see by this photo there was some straw put under the chooks, part of the chooks were raised as were some of the flowers. Each layer was stitched around. Some of the chooks and the centre of the flowers had dimensial added to them to raise the look of them even further.

Like I say I had som much fun making this card. I hope you enjoy looking at it!
