Shelly's Images Challenge

Hey there everyone!  So glad you stopped by today!

Before moving on to today's challenge at Shelly's Images, I'd like to announce the winner of a Shelly's Images Gift Voucher chosen from my commenters list from last week's challenge ... DRUM ROLL PLEASE ...

Congratulations Tonya ... please contact me at
and I email you your winner's voucher!
Now on to another fun challenge at Shelly's Images and today's FEATURED image is a fun one called 'ROOSTER'.  Growing up on a small farm, this image brought back childhood memories and I truly enjoyed coloring & creating with this image.

The challenge theme for today is:
(anything goes)

I decided to make a "Z-Fold" card today and how fortunate was I to find this Rooster Design Paper at Michael's last week (on sale 6 for $1 - 12x12)!  I colored my rooster with SU watercolor pencils and blender pen.  It's very faint but I also sponged a little TH 'broken china' ink around the outside edge.

Here's what my card looks like open.  I simply die cut another circle (same size as the gold mat circle) to use on the inside for my sentiment.  The sentiment stamps are from the Crafty Secrets 'Down On The Farm' clear stamp set.  I've colored Mr. Rooster also with SU watercolor pencils.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun this week at Shelly's Images
And, if you need inspiration, wait till you see what my team mates have created for you!

See you there!
