Country Friend

When I saw the Just Because Cards Cartridge I immediately fell in love with the rooster you can cut on it. I don't use country decor in my house but I really like the look of a country kitchen. I think it is because my grandma had cute stuff like that when I was growing up. She also had a chicken coop in her back yard and I'd go with her to collect the eggs.

I couldn't wait to make a card with that fun rooster in mind. I had never made one before this (even though it was one of the big reasons why I just "had to have it"). I used the Just Because Cartridge and a sketch challenge over at Card Patterns (sketch #73).
I pen stitched the rooster with some gell pens and used a MS punch on the large square in the center and on the corner tabs. I used a couple of embossing folders (swiss dots and SU lattice). I did a little inking, added some hemp twine, and added buttons in the corners.
I like the cheery and colorful look of this card but I'm just not sure who I'll end up giving it to. So I left it blank for now. I'm sure when the times comes it will hit me!
Thanks for looking!!!
