Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #FabFri159: Home to Roost

Good afternoon!

We finally had some significant signs of spring this weekend and it made my heart happy (we even got some time out in the yard working on cleaning out the beds for the new year).  Because we were on the go I only had a little bit of time to relax and craft but I'll take every bit I can get.  Today's card uses the Fab Friday sketch challenge as inspiration as well as the Home to Roost stamp set (this is the last week you can earn this stamp set for FREE!)

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added Cherry Cobbler cardstock as a mat for the cardfront that is Very Vanilla cardstock which I stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp using Basic Black ink and then I sponged around the edges with Soft Suede ink (I actually sponged around all the stamped pieces so I'm just stating it once).

Next I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and embossed it with the Big Shot and Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder and then I played around with the top left corner until I could separate the cardstock layers and rolled down the top layer for a fun effect.  For the main stamped image I stamped the rooster in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored it in with Stampin' Blends before cutting it out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits and attached the oval with dimensionals.

To finish off the card I added a piece of Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon and a knot using Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon.  The greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch and attached with dimensionals.

This card has a fun farm-chic look and I love the buffalo check mixed with all the other elements, lots of texture to entertain the eye.
