Double Challenge

OMG, I can't believe it, I did two challenges in one. It usually is tough enough for me to do one challenge, but this time I combined two. Daring Cardmakers has a challenge to make a card using

Something Old
Something New
Something Borrowed
Something Blue
SO

Somethig Old - Beige Paper
Something New - Copic Markers
Something Borrowed - Chicken Stamp
Something Blue - Paper

and I added

Something Shiny - Circular Paper Clip

The card sketch is a sketch that Kimberly at Crafty Me has posted from Splitcoast. The copic markers are new and I need to work with them more. I did not notice until I took a picture of the card and croped it that my chicken legs are out of sorts. I will send the card to someone with old eyes like mine and they will never notice.

I brought this card into work yesterday and placed in on my desk, I had planned on giving it to the first person that noticed it. Can you believe no one did. Well Mr. Chicken will be on my desk today and hopefully will find a home by 5:00pm.

Adorable. I love the chicken stamp. I haven't yet tried the Copic markers. I'm afraid that once I do I can kiss my stamping budget goodbye :)

Great card.

YEA! You got your Copics! Aren't they fun? I too am still perfecting them but I love how smooth they are! The only complaint I have is that I wish there was a finer tip! Great job on this chickie!
