Chicken? Egg?

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at Die-namites Dies blog this months challenge was a sketch and dare.  The dare was to use an egg shape.  Well.  As a keeper of chickens I am well aware that eggs come in many shapes and sizes.  I figured they were looking for the usual conventional egg shape.  

I used a gold base card and also cut a lot of the elements from the same card.  The patterned papers are from MME Unforgettable collection.  I added a brown layer and fussy cut an egg shape from the blue.  I used a spellbinders border die to cut a piece of the gold card and then added a piece of ribbon with yellow chickens on it.  I used Die-namites Windy Wheat die and Spring Branch Die.
