Rise and Shine

Good Morning, it is Shirley posting today.  I have made a card for the new Red/Black Rooster challenge this week  This is a fun challenge and I do hope you will join us. I just love rooster and chicken cards. Getting to use Black and Red was an added bonus.

I bought this paper years ago when I went to Colorado to meet a couple of my Splitcoaststampers friends. I guess I was saving it for just the right card, and this challenge was a perfect time to use it.

I chose to use black card stock, and Poison Ivory Curious Metallic paper for my card base and layers. I used a circle die, and an embossing folder from my collection, to showcase the Rooster from the Impression Obsession Rooster and Chickens die set. Crafts Too has a nice embossing folder called Dots, that would do the trick. I did not have a small sun die, so I used a flower punch for my sun. I used basket shredding that was saved from a gift to represent barnyard hay.  I added a Ribbon bow and tied a button on it with twine.

The metal embellishment came from my stash, from when I first started scrapbooking and card making. I used the NEW Memory Box Distressed Baptisia Collage die set for the corner chicken wire embellishment.  I really was impressed when I opened it, to find that it  came with a magnetic sheet for easy storage. I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere everything to the card.  As much as I use this adhesive, I think I need to buy it in a 55 gallon drum.  ~grin~  Does that tell you how much I like it?
