The chicken is paper pieced and I just had to put the chicken body on a wobble spring! I made the chicken wire background by stamping the Kaisercraft Texture 'Honeycomb' stamp in SU! Smoky Slate ink. I inked the edges of the white panel, the 'No spring chicken' sentiment label and all the fussy cut paper pieced elements. I popped the heart and a few of the eggs up on 3D foam pads. I glued the white panel to a Real Red CS mat layer, added three screw brads, glued the '60' numbers in place and glued the entire panel to a 7" x 5" white card base.
One of the sentiments in the stamp set is 'No spring chicken but still a tasty dish' and I cut the stamped sentiment apart so I could have part of the sentiment on the front and the rest of it on the inside of the card. I glued the sentiment to a label cut from patterned paper and added more stamped and fussy cut eggs.
For the envelope I simply stamped this large sentiment onto a piece of patterned paper and glued it to the front of the envelope.
