LOC Three French Hens...

We are counting down for Christmas and over at Layer of Color we are celebrating with 3 French Hens and what better set to use than one of the New Release sets 'Arise and Shine'!

The DP has been embossed with the Victoria Embossing Folder - it is one of my favourites, when I think about it, I use my Cuttlebug every day - I would be lost without it! I love the texture it adds to a card instantly!  Scalloped gems have been  added to the top of the DP, with red nail bling in the centre of each scallop.

The chickens were stamped and two of them were cut around, the other one has been cut out with a scalloped circle punch.  The chickens have been coloured with Chalks.  I also stamped and Urn from Her Majesty's Urns, this has been cut out and played under the chicken in the scalloped circle!  The other two chickens have been popped up on dimensionals and placed near the urn!  You can see the added dimension in ths close up.

Black lace has been threaded through a Pearl buckle, or slider, as many of you call them, the sentiment has been cut out with a Fiskars punch and sponged around the edges.  It has also been attached near the buckle, with a dimensional added at then end to keep it even and give it the 'zing' it needs!

This card is for the Pile It On Challenge which is about Flourishes and Flowers - the flourishes are all over the backgound in the embossing and the flowers are around the chickens necks.
The Pink Elephant Challenge is 'Colour Me Wonderful' using your favourite technique - we all know that chalking is mine - followed closely by embossing!!
