Rise and Shine

Did you hear that rooster?  Well, I did and I do, almost every morning.  We have three :(  Hubby says they are a nuisance, but will not do anything about it and you know you can't give away a rooster!

This card is for this week's Etsy Inspired challenge.  It's challenge number 100!!!  The site featured is {Cathy Walters} and I chose this darling little pendant as my inspiration for this card. 

This was such an easy card to make.  I let the designer paper do all the work for me.  I used my edge distresser and my sponge and that is about it.  Oh yeah, I also dyed my ribbon and attempted to crinkle it up.  It looks distressed so that is good, but it didn't crinkle so well.  Maybe I really need silk or seam binding and taffeta isn't working here for me!  Oh well!

Thanks for stopping by!


Details - Paper: Very Vanilla, Poppy Parade, Flair Designs: Farmer's Market; Ink: Creamy Caramel; Accessories: MM edge distressing tool, stampin' sponge, moss taffeta ribbon, linen thread, random button, Log Cabin Smooch spray, glue dots, random button.
