I Love Country!

Does this look familiar?

I have used some of the elements that I have on my blog design.

My blog background is from *Cutest Blog on the Block*, but since there was no header to go with it, I purchased the kit so that I could make my own header.  

Below is the cute card that inspired me...

I saw it at Scrapbook.com

After seeing this I wanted to do a *country* card.
I really do love *country* and roosters....I have a few of them around my home.  I thought that these backgrounds etc would work perfectly.
  I did a patchwork background and stitched around the edges, except for the one on the lower right, which I distressed.  The edges of all four are inked with distress ink.  The rooster is embossed to round him out a bit, and then stuck on with pop dots.  Ribbon & buttons from my stash.  I didn't add a sentiment yet.  Sometimes I don't until I know who I'm giving it to, then I can add something appropriate.

A closer look...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.
