CAS with the use of Metallic Tape

The challenge theme over at LIM is "metal", ADFD "green" and Keep It Simple "Things with Wings", and I thought I'd combine these themes for my card.
I treated myself to this image of adorable chicken yesterday and wanted to use it straight away. I colored the chicken with a pencil using "squeezed lemoande" and "wild honey" Distress Inks. I ussycut the image and mounted it on foam.
The paper has a lovely textured look, so I kept it untouched, added it to a panel of green paper. I know it doesn't look green, but it is... This is one of the reasons I rarely make green cards - the colors always end up looking very different on photos than they do in real life, no matter what I do with lighting and angles.  You'll just have to take my word for it:)
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and metallic tape to make the ground.

This is for these challenges:
1) A Day for Daisies -#90 Add Green
2) Less Is More - #160 Metal
3) Keep It Simple! - #34 Things with Wings
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Oh you have brightened up my day with these five little chicks went out one day, over the hills and far a way....oh well, just brought back kid memories lol...awesome metal too.xx

Yes, this is the problem with blogging your cards - sometimes it's so hard to get accurate photos. Photographing acetate, mirror card and glitter always defeats me.
Anyway, this is such a great CAS design - cute chicks so originally combined with the metallic strip.
