3 French Hens

Last one for the month and just scraping into the Rudolph Challenge for March.
The French hens came pecking at the back door this morning saying they were rather partial  to having Caviare for  their breakfast and did I have any! Haven't they heard of Lockdown . Now I don't know any french but I think they got the gist of what my reply was. 



The image is by Digi Stamps 4 Joy and called 'Pea Hens'. Digi only had 2 hens so I printed off  2 copies and fussy cut one extra one that I super imposed in front of the others.  Die cut out using Spellbinder Romantic Rectangles. I coloured using my Graph'it pens, a gold gel pen and Pearlescent Chalks (on the background.  Sentiment is Tonic's Modern Christmas cut twice in green and cream and off set slightly for depth. All layered up using green and cream cardstock.

I am now one over par for the month of March so hope I can keep my momentum going.  


 Stay Safe.

Those French Hens sound really entitled expecting caviar!
Great card Mrs A and a good idea to fussy cut the extra hen so there are three. You have done such a good job of the fussy cutting and colouring that I thought they were all part of the same image.
Congrats on keeping on track with your cards.

This is great - well done for thinking of adding the extra hen to make up the right number for the song, very ingenious.

Cute lead-in to this post! Love what you did with the digi image, and smart of you to add an extra (and dimensional one!) to adhere to the theme of 3 French hens. The colors are so pretty on this card! TFS & Hugs.

This card is so lovely! The three French Hens look great. Hope you had some treats for them.
The sentiment is superb. Love that you double layered it. I did not notice that at first, but when I read your blog post, I looked again and realized that they were layered and that was what made them pop off the page.

Beautiful card!
Thanks for taking part in the Rudolph Days Challenge.
