If you're into French Country style, you must be familiar with rooster images, and sunflowers, too.
This Graphic 45 patterned paper (I don't know the name, sorry!) was the jumping-off point for the card's design. I bought a pack of the paper at Tuesday Morning, and it's got like 24 sheets in the pack...and all the same design. Ha ha. It's going to last me a while!
The rooster image is from Fiskars' Vintage Farmhouse. I used the script stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Rustic Rooster behind the little guy, in a light ink. The yellow die cuts behind the rooster panel were created with a die (cut twice) from this Spellbinders set, Fleur De Lis Motifs (right column, second one down):
There is a sprinkling of Espresso sequins, surrounding the focal point, as well as some jute braid, crocheted trim, and a teeny tiny tag with a Tiny Tag sentiment (Papertrey Ink).
I also dressed up the patterned paper with a couple of postmark stamps, in dark brown ink, near the bottom left corner of the card (Pink Paislee London Market / Vintage Impressions). The pattern of the paper is quite busy already, but I felt it needed something subtle. Kind of like a, "Where's Waldo?" thing. ;-)
Thanks for coming by! You're wonderful and don't you forget it!
