April Sketch for Magnolia-licious!

Here's my card for Diana's April sketch challenge over at the Magnolia-licious store. You can also see the creations of the rest of the design team. Suzanne and I happened to choose the same image! She created the sketch herself and it was so fun to work with! The stamps are from Diana's Magnolia store, Old Bench and Is this your Egg? I used two old SU stamps as well, the chicken wire and the sentiment. My card base is Kraft and I used PTI's Poppy red for mounting. the dp is from Graphic 45. I used both sides of one paper from the Playtimes past collection. the paper is called Hopscotch. My card is 5"x 5". I sponged like crazy with Vintage Photo distress ink. Edwin is colored with copic markers. (Did you see my new Designer logo on the sidebar? Yeah!)
I made the chicken scratches around the paper edges with my small black pen.
Here's Diana's sketch.

I don't fuss a lot with the insides of my cards, I just don't have the time! I usually try to do something to add a little interest, though. Here I used more of the papers from the front and the chicken footprints from the old SU set, Best of Cluck. I continued the prints on the top half of the inside of the card. I think I will also add my "chicken scratching" around the nestability frame before sending this.

Here are my markers. My husband and I bought the Ciao sets before the sketch became so popular (they were cheaper, and I wanted A LOT of markers!) so of course the color is not on the cap :(
Below is a list of the Ciaos I used.
E25, E31, E33, E35, E000. E01, E47, E51, E08, R20, Y21, Y17, R17, R46, B12, B24, B97
I really like how this card came out and hope you've enjoyed your visit.
Thank you so much for "Chicken in" here today!
