Easter...BasicGrey Challenge.

Hi...hope you are doing ok?
when i was making this card i was
thinking of those bright Spring sunny mornings
which we will have soon..
loved making it..i have used some of
for our new Challenge at BasicGrey 
 which is a card/project for Easter...

love this Magnolia rooster
even though i have coloured it a bit dark,
the trees,fence and sentiment are also Magnolia stamps.
i have coloured with distress markers,did
a bit of fake stitching and distressing.
the dotty orange card has been embossed
with Cricut Cuttlebug folder-Chicken wire and border
and sanded it lightly.
also used TH decorative strip alphabet for wording,
vintage lace die
and a new Joy Craft Die-vintage flourishes
a couple of brads and BG button...

We have our wonderful sponsor..
Simon Says Stamp

 and one very lucky person
will win a fab $25 shopping spree...
