Cock-a-doodle-do/Heather's Friday Spark

It's 5:00 AM. Get up, Get up!! A friend of mine likes roosters and chickens. Seems like every year, she gets something else from me with one of them on it. This also gave me the opportunity to enter Heather's challenge. Her challenge was to use something cut out. I found the picture of the original rooster while searching clip art with google. I printed this one, then enlarged it. I then printed 2 out, and one I left intact. The other one I dismembered and used those to put back on with foam dots, over the other one. I also touched up the color on both printed ones. I put him on white card stock, then used red gingham to go under that. On the bottom and top of the gingham I cross stitched with a black marker. Then I used black and yellow for the next two layers. I repeated those same colors inside and added a birthday greeting. Hope he makes you smile this morning.
