Good Cluck!

Morning Folks!
We are already half way through June ( I know, really??) which means it's time for a new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. This month we would like to see 

(wet or dry or both - we don't mind!)

I made this card for my son who has just done his AS exams. I was trying to find a fun, but masculine, exam good luck on Pinterest and came across several cards using a Stampin' Up set which I think is called Good Cluck. That sparked this idea using a Penny Black stamp called Cluck! Quack! 

My embossed element is the chicken wire background made using an SU hexagons embossing folder inked up with chalk ink on kraft paper - another idea from Pinterest! Love how this turned out.

Here's the close up view, love those happy faces and can just imagine the racket they are making!

and the sentiment inside the card, a Tim Holtz stamped greeting, trimmed and with a brown sticker added

Pleased to say my son thought this was great which made me happy!
