Here's a fun card I made for a very dear friend who turned 50 last July but is celebrating this milestone tomorrow night with a country and western style party. I'm taking a chance posting this tonight but I'm hoping she's far too busy with party business to check out blogland.
I don't have much in the way of country and western, but I hope this WMS Chicken Wire Background
will pass muster. Her surname is Koch so I knew I had to have a rooster in pride of place - this handsome cockerel is from WMS French Country
. The cock-a-doodle-doo sentiment is from a Freebie stamp from Craft Stamper.
I generated the inside sentiment using Burnstown Dam font.
If you're wondering about those digits, here's a close up.
As you can see I attached acetate "springs" to the 5 and 0. They fold flat to go into the envelope but then pop up again when opened (I hope).
I'm entering this card in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5
as there are several NBUS items here - the Chicken Wire background, the French Country cockerel and the craft stamper sentiment.
Freshly Made Sketch #203
gave me the idea to mount the cockerel inside a frame and to attach the sentiment to the left of it.
And Seize the Birthday
has an Anything Goes challenge (as long as its a birthday card) so I'm entering over as well
Thanks for stopping by - especially if you take the time to comment,
