Hey chickie

Today starts a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug. Sketch and CASE challenges are my personal favorites. And the sketch we've got this fortnight I'm sure I'm going to use again.

I went with a rustic style card for a chick, using "Hey chickie" from the Bugaboo store, colored with Promarkers.
I've used a DP and an embossed paper that Monika of Creative With Monika sent me a while back.

My "new" items are the doily die and sentiment stamps. They were actually pre-Christmas gifts from my sister (we make each other advent calendars, very childish but SO fun!). I also just recently bought what I used as hay, I just can't figure out the English word for it, but I hope some of you will share that with me:)

This card is also for:
Sweet Stampin - Something New
Crafty Gals Corner - #102 Use Something New
Craft Rocket Challenges - #30 Something New

[Looked through the comments-- I was going to say rafia, too, though I'd love to hear the Norwegian word... love your language! Sidenote on that: just read a book wth my daughter and it was set in Oslo... here and there wed get Norwegian words and names... thought of you]
This card is great-- you mastered the country theme. There's the pretty plaid from which you also made your recent smile card!
