Celebrate Today!

I tried to use my 10 hour travel time in the car over the weekend productively. I took along my Stampers' Sampler Take Ten Winter 2010! As I went through the pages I made sketches, took notes, and thought of stamps sets I owned that I can use for the same look.

Roosters were featured a couple of times! I have a retired SU set "Roosting" that has not seen ink in a long time. 2 Sketches 4 You and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch had similar layouts perfect for what I had in mind.

I chose to stamp the Rooster on pattern paper giving it a more vintage feel versus coloring. Spellbinder's Fleur de lis border was the perfect addition for added interest. The pattern papers are from a Michael's paper pack.

A sentiment from PTI's mixed messages and twine keep the card simple but sweet!! Oh, the card base is PTI's vintage cream. I had been using a lighter weight cardstock for card bases. Not anymore. It does make a different in the quality of the finished product.

Keep Creating! ~Rhonda
