Fowl, Chicken Wire, and Metal!!

Again, I was intrigued by a newer challenge site I ran across lately, FarmQuest Challenge!  For this challenge I needed to include Fowl and Wire and/or Metal!  I was momentarily stumped, but I got the job done with ALL THREE!

This challenge inspired my card and the video below!

  1. Haven't watched the video yet but wanted to start with thanking you for supporting another FQCB theme! This fowl card isn't foul at all!! Superb! It's so bright and cheerful. The hexagons do look like chicken wire. The gold eyelet adds sheen. The rooster and coordinates from patterned paper add the impact. Well done! Thanks for linking to FarmQuest! --Becca S/owner
