You're A Good Egg

Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #585 :)

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

One of my husband's colleagues recently gave us some eggs from her chickens, so I wanted to send her a thank you note. I knew I definitely wanted to use the Good Egg by Brandi (Essentials By Ellen) stamp set and coordinating dies to make my card. And Judy's sketch made me think about the Watercolor Stripes Cover Die from Altenew that's been in my stash for ages but hasn't seen nearly enough love. I decided to try die-cutting it from woodgrain cardstock to create the look of wooden planks. What do you think? Success? I layered it up with a piece of sunshine rays patterned paper and that set the scene for my cute little hen.

I had so much fun making this card!!! I hope my husband's colleague likes it :)

Thank you for visiting! Have a fantastic weekend!!!
