No one would describe me as “a little bit country” because I don’t enjoy being outside, but I am a sucker for country clothes, animals, barns, etc as long as I just have to look at them and don’t have to be around them;)

I began with a Blueberry Bushel card base, used my Basket embossing folder inked with Soft Suede on Crumb Cake card stock, then layered on top of that is DSP from the Wood Textures package, another layer of Blueberry Bushel, on top of that is the super cool Chicken Wire element. Using the Layering Circle thinlints I cut out the scalloped circle on Soft Suede, I stamped the grass with Crumb Cale & rooster with Soft Suede, onto Whisper White cardstock and colored the rooster with Stampin’ Blends before I used another thinlit to cut it out.

For the inside all I needed to do was stamp the grass with Soft Suede.
