CAS flowers and a cranky chicken

Hello!

I saw the inspiration photo over at Just Add Ink and I just couldn't resist playing along! Such pretty flowers! I used my new favourite flowers - SU! Garden in Bloom - and, because I am also joining in with Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge where the theme is colouring, I coloured with Copics.
I masked the flowers to create my little grouping
Edit to add: I'm joining in at Time Out Challenges, too! I knew there was one I had missed listing!

Before I go, I'll share a photo of my chicken Peggy. She has gone broody and very cranky. She spent all day running around with her tail feathers flared and her hackles up making velociraptor noises (as heard in Jurassic Park). She's rather scary when she's like this, haha!
Thanks for dropping by!

This is gorgeous Michelle! I love the definition and vibrancy to your flower arrangement that your colouring adds - something I'd love to try with this set too! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

Beautiful card Michelle. Love the layout and design with your masked flowers and leaves. Your colouring with Copics is fantastic ... great shading to give the flowers lots of depth. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

Poor Peggy. Sounds like she woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. :)

Your card is simply gorgeous, Michelle, and so very vibrant! I hope Peggy is all right and just deploying her female prerogative to be cranky sometimes!! Hugs, Darnell

How's Peggy doing? She hasn't eaten all the other chickens has she?? Sounds like she needs a girls night out and a mani/pedi to calm her down. So excited to see you at Just Add Ink. Your card is so beautiful and just love the way you coloured your flowers. If your interested, we also have a 'Make Your Mark' challenge over at Time Out challenges with the chance to win something from Uniko Studio. This would be perfect!!!
