A b-day card for a chook lover :)

Just how many challenges can one possibly incorporate into a single card?
Let me count... will four do? :P
It's nasty, lol I know I shouldn't do it... but as soon as I saw some of the tasks given to us this week on various blogs, I had this card in my mind immediately. Actually I could add one more to the list with this one, but I decided that four is far enough already :D
Here it is:


So which challenges I've got ticked with this one?
- Laura's sketch 33 from 2 Sketches 4 You. I altered it a bit, as I'd usually do ;)
- Challenge #30 called The Farm, hosted by Crafty Creations, which is about including anything inspired by the farm in the project. I assumed that a my chook would fit nicely :)
- Paper Piecing challenge over at Scrappy Frogs. This is going to be my second entry (see my turtle card for the 1st one), but as I stated already, I've never tried this technique before, and since I got hooked at the spot, I felt like I need to try it one more time...
- and lastly, "It's a Flower, But It's Not!" challenge at Paper Blooms, which is about using a flower in the way we wouldn't normally do. I loved the DT samples, they inspired me greatly!
Now, you're probably wondering where the said flower is?
Take a look at this close-up:


I used the crocheted flower for both the comb and wattle of my lil' chick =) Can you see it?
Hope you like my card, as I had so much fun creating it!

And just to finish this post nicely, I'd like to share some wonderful news with you:

Firstly, my baby has been in breech position for the last couple of weeks, which was making me sad as I hoped to avoid Caesarian section by any means, and today I found out that she turned head down! YAY!! Chupa mummy is going to have a natural birth! (about 3 weeks now) =D

Secondly, I am this week's featured artist on Paper Blooms! How cool is that?!
Their Design Team apparently liked my cotton buds holder lol!

Thank you for peeping in, happy crafting!
Chupa xx
