Hope you had a lovely weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!  I got a few blissful moments in my craft room to create a card using Waltzingmouse Stamp's French Country and Chicken wire.  The layout for this card was inspired by this card by Ashley Cannon Newell (thanks Ashley!).

The main panel of the card is Vintage Cream.  I stamped the top portion with the small Chicken wire and the bottom with the tile pattern from french country. The stripes are decorative tape from Martha Stewart.  I did adhere the tapes to a separate pieces of cardstock to avoid the stamped pattern showing through.  Once all the tapes were laid out, I adhered them to the panel at a diagonal and trimmed the excess.  

I stamped the rooster and sentiment in dark chocolate ink and finished the panel with a bit of twine + a red button.  All of the edges were inked and then the finished panel was adhered to a kraft card base. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
