Hiding out with the Hen

This is a farm themed card I made for my SIL who is very fond of chickens.  My SIL  raises them and even built an incredible coop for them using straw bales and a tin roof.  She is a truly amazing woman and if it comes to running a farm or returning to natural ways of doing things, she is beyond capable. I have tried to color the little hen in this image to match her hens which are all black with red combs.  These images were stamped for me by a friend just for her.  I used some some of my fav K&Co. Portabello Road paper to go with it. I just love the country feel they gave this card.  It was fun popping the wee mousies up and hiding them in the crinkly paper nest. 
I made the little tag to say eggs/s$1 dz. but is hard to read in the photo I covered it in crackle accents.  In person it looks pretty spiffy although it did not photograph well.
