Play Date with a Midnight Madness Rooster?

It was a very busy week for me which unfortunately did not include any stamping or crafting. Today, however, I got a chance to play! I've been dying to try out the color combos over at Play Date Cafe and I saw a great sketch on Midnight Madness so I was off and crafting.

The colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge (PDCC17) were Red, Brown and Linen. I was searching through my red paper drawer when I came across some fun rooster silhouette paper which made me think of a cool rooster image my good and lovely friend, Debby, had sent me. I then remembered another paper with a similar motif that would fit the linen color criteria. Voila! But what to do with all this stuff? That's where the Midnight Madness Sketch #41 came in. I had to flip the sketch a bit so my chickens would show but I think it still works.

Here's my take on these two challenges:

Keep Crowing
Stamp: rooster (Squigglefly)
Paper: No. 261 (Steve's Pages); Les Poulets (Reminisce)
Cardstock: Real Red (Stampin Up); white
Copics: E09, E13, E15, E19, E55, E57, E59, R24, R27, Y38

Hope you had something to crow about today!
