Tilda With Mr. Rooster

Finally a Magnolia Card!  I have been dying to use my newest Maggie, Tilda With Mr. Rooster.
I colored her with TH Distressed Inks and matched her with Graphic 45 new paper French Country.  There are plenty of roosters in the paper

I made a pull out bookmark that slips down the center behind Tilda.  I used the masking technique with the chicken wire stamp and shaded all around with distressed inks to blend with the papers.

 You can see the metal jean embellishment from Prima and a bunch of tags I punched out from the paper.  I used a few feathers to compliment Mr Rooster.

Here is the inside of the card using the same French Country Papers.  I used the tag and sentiment labels for writing a message on.

This is definately "country" as a women on a hobby farm.  I would not be holding a rooster like that, they get a little mean. lol

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate you leaving me comments!
Have a great day
