On Your Special Day...

Today's card is for a special request from a friend :)
The card had to feature 3 chickens!! and an egg to represent her 3 grandchildren and one on the way! Sweet :) to give to her daughter and son-in-law on their anniversary.
This stamp instantly sprung to mind luckily!! I love the way each cute chicken has a gift/card, perfect for the occasion!
I have made the card bright and bold and not lovey-dovey as requested! just adding a wee heart to mark the occasion :)
The stamp is of course Penny Black and the papers are freebies from a magazine a while ago.
I have coloured the image with promarkers and paper pieced the balloon.

I am entering my card into the following challenges -

CES Challenges #2 - Floral Frenzy..
PearTree Designs #16 - Animals..
Spoonfull of Sugar #120 - Animal Crackers..
FabnFunky Challenges #39 - What'eva'!!
ETA! - Totally forgot to link my card up for the Penny Black @ Allsorts challenge!!
The September challenge is 'Punch Away' and I have used 5 different punches on this one :)
They are also having a DT call at the moment so I am entering that too!
Thanks for looking xx
