Today's card features a bright and cheery rooster from Polka Dot Orchard that I've been wanting to color for a couple weeks now. Isn't he a beauty?!

What a beautiful bird-inspired card, the rooster is magnificent! I love the colourful feathers against the checkered background, as well as the touch of farm style that comes with the animals in the lower part of your creation. The addition of burlap and lace fits nicely, too. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika

Your card really gives a true "on the farm" feel with the burlap, lace, and checkered background, and of course that brightly colored rooster! Great take on our B for bird challenge! Thanks for playing along at the Alphabet Challenge.

Hi Esther! Well, I told you how much I loved this on IG but I will reiterate my kudos! This card speaks to me because we had chickens when I was a child and I used to have to chase the roosters out of the corn field and back to the barn at night keep them away from the foxes who lived nearby! You have done such a great job with all of the layers and I love the touch of burlap and lace! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the Alphabet Challenge "B" is for Bird!
