"At the Fair"

This covers two challenges, The Cuttlebug Spot, which is "At the Fair". We were to make a card with something we remember from the fair. You would think that the first thing I would think of would be the rides, or the fresh apple pies for sale. But I didn't, I thought of the animals the kids raise and take to the fair for judging. So that is where my inspiration came from. Of course, you would then think that I would think of the cows, or the sheep. But again, I didn't. I thought of the roosters....go

At Jitter Buggin Challenge, we are to follow this weeks sketch of course, and a favorite something, which is the fair. I LOVE walking around the fair and seeing all that the vendors have to offer. But by far, my favorite is the animal judging. It is hilarious to watch the little kids running around like crazy trying to catch their prized roosters and chickens!!! Also, we were to use two of our favorite colors. I've always loved the colors blue and red together.

The pattern papers are Complete Boy by My Minds Eye, I just love the colors in this line! The front base of the card, I used Core'dinations Black Magic with the red core. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the spots and dots embossing folder, then sanded for the red to show through. I also made the rooster using the same cardstock.

I cut the rooster from Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge. Actually, it was the chicken, but, I thought it looked more like a rooster than the rooster one. I cut it out 3 times in 3 colors to piece him together. (sure wish all the carts had the layering function like CAC) anyway, for his eyes, I used the old fashion hole punch, you know, the one you hit with the hammer. I used the large hole for the white, and the small hole for the black. And of course, I had to use pop dots for dimension. I think it is adorable!

The ribbon I made with the Office Help cart. I cut out the badge twice, and adhered the ribbon between them. Then topped it with the starburst and a circle. I cut the 1st from the Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge. For the banner, I just cut elongated triangles by hand and added alpha rub ons, added some white embrodery floss for the tabs and used pop dots for more dimension.

All in all, I like how it turned out.
