Country Morning

This is my card for two blog challenges! These challenges are a great place for some stampin' motivation! I am always looking for some motivation;)
My thought on this card was 1st inspired for the color challenge over at Scrapmaster's ParadiseI have to admit, this was really a challenge for me!! I tend to stick to "cutesy" and these colors don't scream "cutesy" to me. So these colors screamed rooster to me! Now on to the layout in which I got the inspiration for at Stamping 411. It looks like this:

So here's what I used:
Stamp Sets:(Hostess)Country Morning
Colors:Soft Suede,DustyDurango, Bashful Blue, Watercolor Paper-White
Accessories:Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper,1/2 in soft suede polka dot ribbon,polka dot impressions folder,crystal effects,vintage brad,1 3/8in square punch,aqua painter,perfect details texturz plate,Snail Adhesive,glue dote,1/2"circle punch

On to the card:I used a dusty durango card base.I made a few panels approx 2x3 in"-1 suede 1-bashful blue and a few from the sweet pea DSP pack. One of the dsp's I trimmed to layer on my blue the other I left as is. I also made a smaller coordinating dsp of about 2x2 1/2 inches. Another soft suede square of 1 3/4". I water colored my staz-on stamped image from country morning on water color paper. I also ran my larger soft suede through texturz plate just to add some dimension to my suede. I did not have any durango ribbon(Oh no!) so *think,think* a strip of DSP it is! I made a faux ribbon and faux button to add to my strip of DSP. I ran a strip of durango through the polka dot textrz plate then folded to make it look like a ribbon=)
I wrapped a piece of suede polka dot ribbon around and added a faux button to it. To make your button I punch a 1/2" circle in DSP

I then add crystal effects over that circle and allow to dry=)))Attach with a glue dot to your faux bow!

Added a piece of soft suede held with a vintage brad on my top layer. Attach all panels like layout challenge!!
Hope you enjoyed!
Until Next Thought~
