The founders of Drunken Stampers are celebrating birthdays this month! Woohoo! Go here to check out Peggy's world and here to see what Spike is up to.
In honor of what must have been two of the most important days in world history, they're celebrating with a Birthday Card challenge.
My own card took all week to figure out. Who knows why. Sometimes the creative whatchamacallits just won't cooperate.
The card base is cut from recycled card stock with Stampin' Up wheels rolled across the top and bottom in, I think, Very Vanilla. The embossing is Martha Stewart copper.
Our chicken friend is provided by Cricut's From My Kitchen collection: So cute, don't you think? The chicken "parts" are from Die Cuts With a View Travel stack (which I found at Marshall's C.H.E.A.P.).
The tag is trimmed from a larger piece made on the Cricut and is embellished with a corduroy brad.
Oh, and the tag sentiment also is embossed with MS copper using a Close To My Heart embossing pen (I'm fairly sure you can use any Zig pen for embossing as it's all pigment ink, but having a tool dedicated to a particular use never makes me cry).
