Rustic Rooster

Hi everyone!
If you told me that I would be stamping a rooster on a card, I would have called you a liar. Here I am...making chicken cards!
I am spending the week making cards using the Wood Words Bundle from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!  I have 5 cards for you this week. Each one is very different from the other and I really love how all of them turned out. I am excited for you to see them!
First, a rooster. I have created two rustic/country cards the last couple of weeks and I must admit that I am very smitten with them!
I started this card by picking a wood grain from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. This happens to be the same wood grain that I used on my Strawberry Mason Jar card last week. This brown is the same tone as Soft Suede. I decided to mimic the same color scheme from the strawberry card, but add Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White. 
I started this card by doing all of my die cutting first. I used the scalloped edge from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler. I used the 3 smallest circles from the Stitched Shape Framelits to cut 2 circles from Cherry Cobbler and one from Very Vanilla.  I stamped the rooster image using Cherry Cobbler ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla and used the coordinating framelit to cut it out.
For the card base, I layered a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. onto a piece of Soft Suede. I stamped the floral image from the stamp set twice and colored the flowers using the Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers.  I added the scalloped border to the bottom of the piece of wood grain paper. To add a touch of femininity, I added a piece of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim.

Once I had adhered the paper panel to the card with dimensionals, I layered the circles with dimensionals as well.
