Sorry, sorry!!

I know it's Tuesday evening. Life has been on fast-forward for a while! :) So, without further delay, here's the other RUSTIC ROOSTER card I promised to show you!

Isn't it cool?????? :)
The background is a feather-type stamp that comes in this Level 2 HOSTESS-ONLY stamp set, done with Ruby Red on Ruby Red.
The TOP NOTE (Stampin' Up! exclusive Sizzix die!) is cut from Creamy Caramel AND Old Olive. I cut out the thin outside strip from the Old Olive with my craft knife - if you've never tried Stampin' Up!'s, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's only $4.50, and it's the best balanced craft knife I've ever used!
ANYWAY. Before I cut the Creamy Caramel diecut, I stamped it with the French word background stamp that's in the set in Creamy Caramel. Then, I adhered the Old Olive on top of the Creamy Caramel diecut - and still have the INSIDE of the Old Olive to use on something else!
The rooster itself is colored with Stampin' Write markers - if you want to know specific colors, let me know! :) He's stamped onto Very Vanilla, and the edges are distress with the Cutting Kit's distressing tool.
Keep coming back - I have so many things to show you, so little time! :) What are YOU stamping???????? Why haven't you ordered from my online site yet? This new Idea Book has so much AWESOME stuff in it!!!!!!
