Roosters Gone Postal

This lovely farmyard style Rooster card meets two challenges today! Woohoo! The folks at Really Reasonable Ribbon are having a challenge to make a card using things with wings and ribbon. Also, A.R.T. is hosting their color challenge this week.
I found this great rooster image at Ephemera's Vintage Garden and loved how it had all the colors for the color challenge.
Here's the color challenge:

Here's my card:

For the colors, I used Dark Chocolate, Limeade Ice, Blueberry Sky, Pure Poppy and Spring Rain, from Papertrey Ink. The stamps I used were Postmarks from PTI and Vintage Postcard from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I also used the polka dot stencil from Heidi Swapp on the background.
Here's some close ups of the ribbons and fibers I used.


A strip of old measuring tape

and some brown checked ribbon. Thanks for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit
