Just "chicken" in

** 10/18/16 Top Pick at Sunny Day Crafting! **

Hi everyone! Woot-woot! I have some awesome news to share... I'm an October guest designer for MHK Designs and I'm so stoked that I get to share a card with you each day during the October Release! How awesome is that?! You are really going to love the new sets released over the next five days! You are going to fall madly in love, five times over, lol! ;)

This is Day 1 of the October Release and I've created a fun card using the 'Chicken In' digital stamp set. Love, love, love this set! All of the releases this week have a nice vintage feel! I printed the images and front sentiment on ivory antique linen cardstock and layered them all on black cardstock.

The gingham background paper is from MHK Designs 'Ginham in Rustics' digital paper pack, also printed on ivory antique linen cardstock. I think it's the perfect compliment to these vintage images! The only embellishments I used were yellow gemstones.

I kept the inside simple with a sentiment from the set and layered the panel on black cardstock.

Happy to enter this adorable friendship card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, Marco's Antique Ivory Linen cardstock, The Paper Cut Black cardstock, MHK Designs 'Gingham in Rustics' digital paper
  • Stamps: MHK Designs 'Chicken In' digital stamp set
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- GB7, GB8, GB11, CR11, DR3, EB2, TN1, CG1, CG2, DG2
