Peace and Strength

Hi friends.  Mindy with you today with my card for this weeks' challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such blog, Roosters with a touch of Red and Black. Check out the inspiration photo on the challenge calendar for more inspiration.

My card begins with a background of Regular Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver pressed through a Mini Chicken Wire plastic stencil on red card stock. As this dried, I punched a frame from the Decorative Labels Eight die cut from Spellbinders, using a piece of card stock colored with the Alizarin Crimson Color Burst by Ken Oliver Crafts.  I then die-cut three Roosters and a Moo Moo Cow from Poppystamps to stack upon the Cow's back. I then mounted it on white stock, and trimmed a small border around the die frame before adhering it to the card base.

To complete my card, I added a few Cherry Chocolate Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest, and doodled dots around the edges with black and white ink.  The sentiment is from Peace of God Stamp Set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Thanks for visiting with me today, and be sure to check back daily for more inspiring cards.
