French Country- MMSC99

Happy Wednesday to you all out in Blogger land. I hope today finds you well. For today's card I have an image for you from Doodle Pantry. I picked the Colored image from the set called Chicken(colored). You can find this Here.
I first added some french scrip in a dark blue, after that inked dried I embossed the chicken wire( a Stamp) with black embossing powder.   I dry embossed the top panel and added a silk bow. I have used the sketch from Midnight madness(MMSC99). I have not entered a Midnight madness sketch is such a long time, feels good to be back. Have a great day.
