Let me Eggs plain……….

CDSEggsplain (400x307)

Before we hit the road this past week-end….seriously on the way out the door, I decided I was going to get a card done for the CDS sketch challenge- I have had this set for ages and ages, and thought it would work well with the posted sketch. 

The BG Kraft CS is stamped with a CDS BG stamp with farm sentiments on it in Close to Cocoa. The next layer is Red and it is stamped with the egg from the farm set in White Dye ink. The next layer is distressed by sponging through the mesh onto Kraft CS. The Chickens are colored with Copic markers, and sponged and distressed with Close to Cocoa ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so funny and really cute. I'm going to have to borrow this idea. LOL I always say to my boys "Lucy, you have some 'splainin to do" from the old Lucy and Desi show. This card will come in handy for my son who lives away from home now! Giggles.
