Red, Black, Rooster!

As those who know me are aware, I run the challenge blog Word Art Wednesday.  This is a great place for everyone to share their family-friendly cards and projects; and we offer great prizes each week.  This week, one of our FABULOUS sponsors is Classy Cards 'N Such.  They are offering one lucky person a $15 gift certificate to their store.  They also have a challenge each week on their blog, and I'm inviting you to play along.  I made this card for their challenge this week.  And YOU can link up in their challenge AND the challenge at Word Art Wednesday; giving you TWO chances to win goodies from their store this week.
I used some old Daisy D patterned papers, a Cheery Lynn Designs doily die-cut, some machine stitching, a big bow made from wire-edged gingham ribbon, a yellow button and some jute in the center.  The sentiment is a rub-on that I applied to some chalkboard black paper, and inked in white chalk ink.
I'm sharing this sweet little card in the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs - Challenge #190 - Anything Goes - I used the French Pastry Doily Die-Cut from Cheery Lynn Designs

Classy Cards 'N Such - Challenge #90 - Red, Black and Rooster - This is such a fun challenge, and a chance to use some of your products that may be hidden in your stash.  And if you don't have just the right supplies, you're sure to find them at Classy Cards 'N Such.  Right now, they have all their Cheery Lynn Designs dies 50% off.  Check out this fabulous sale on their blog.  I used the Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Die-Cut on my card.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Use Your Favorite Technique and/or Product" - I incorporated my favorite technique......SEWING!

3 Girl Jam Challenge Blog - June Challenge:  Anything Goes with Ribbon (I love ribbon, and put it on just about every card I make).  LOVE this challenge!
