Just Because Rooster Card

I am in the challenge zone!  I can't believe it took me this long to get involved in them because they are a whole lot of fun!  Over at Emma Aguilar's My Creative Time blog the challenge is to create a card using either Wild Card or Just Because cards and include embossing somewhere on the card.  Well, I have both cartridges, but have never used Just Because Cards so I thought I would challenge myself to use this new cartridge.  I flipped through the book numerous times and kept coming back to this rooster - I have no idea why.  But anyway, here's what I came up with.   

I used Glimmer Mist on several of the Rooster layers and I embossed them with Cuttlebug folders.  I also used Zooballo to cut the grass.  I wanted to make a shaped card, and I needed something to stabilize it.  Zoobaloo has the best grass!  Lol.   I also used a lot of dimension, which I can't get enough of, to try to make this baby pop.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut using spellbinders classic large rectangle and rectangle scallop dies.

Paper:  Stampin Up', Scraps from my Stash
Cartridges:  Just Because Cards, Zoobaloo
Stamps:  Ink - Crumb Cake
Flower:  Recollections

I also entered this card in the Cooking with the Cricut challenge.  It's an anything goes Cricut challenge so this definitely applies!  

Thanks for stopping by!!
