Here's to not being cooped up on your birthday this year

Good morning!  With Easter just around the corner, my teamies at Everybody Art Challenge would like to see "chickens, ducks or bunnies" on your cards.  I saw Frenchie  make a little chicken coop card last year and used my own stash - woodgrain inkpad and embossing folder, punches and dies to make my own version.  It was harder to make than it looked!

The card is a top folding card with my greeting about "not being cooped up for your birthday this year" on the inside but the front panel is in two parts and I used these cute chickens from Stampin Up behind the door which opens to reveal them.  I had to play around with the stamped images a bit.  The recipient of this card keeps chickens and hers are all a Polish breed with great pompoms of feathers on their heads. 

These do look a lot like my friend's chickens in the photo below.  Sorry about the awful quality.  I had to take it through the chicken wire fencing.  The angle was terrible and they kept moving around but you get the idea I'm sure.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Allsorts #670 Any real animals
Krafty Chicks #605 Anything Goes

Polkadoodles #14 Anything Goes

Stamping Sensations - April "I interesting shaped card"

Edited to showcase my proud top 3 picks
