another challenge! CPS155

I remember my friend Joy - aka Daiseyfreak - saying, once you start challenges they become addicting, and since she is an addiction therapist I think she knows of what she speaks! Well just what I needed, another addiction, but wait, this is a good addiction because it helps me use the stash from my craft supply hoarding addiction LOL!
For this card I used SU's French script background on some KandCompany dp also where the dp strip came from, a chicken wire background (cannot remember where I got this). The rooster is from Rustic Rooster an old SU set it is popped up with dimensionals and the sentiment is from Carte Postale, held on with hodgepodge hardware. The twine was in the garage.
I seem to be in a French mood looking at the past few cards I made. I guess because my 6th grader is taking French this marking period and comes home talking about it (not speaking in French though). I think I will give this to one of my daughter's most remarkable and talented teachers, Kate, she gives Abby singing lessons, is her choir teacher and she and her husband bought an old farmhouse they are rebuilding. With all the work they needed to do just to live comfortably in the house they still decided to build a chicken coop and take care of chickens, a 3 year old and a newborn. Makes me tired to just imagine this.

This card was made using the sketch from this challenge:
now since I am just jumping on the challenge bandwagon I am not sure I am doing everything I am supposed to do to fulfill the challenge. I am just starting to randomly find challenges that look interesting to me. I found this on the most talented Jeanne Strieff's blog:
If I didn't do anything I was supposed to please let me know so I can become a better challenge player!
Thanks so much for looking. I am off to look at the 80 cards posted ahead of mine. Hey it's a snow day I am stuck inside anyway :)
