Year of the Rooster!!

 Happy Chinese New Year!

This image is from 
- definitely one of my favorite digis!  Love the Asters that balance his tail feathers and those Farmer Johns are so unexpected!

The fold is a simple Z-fold and the background CS has been embossed with a folder from Cuttlebug.

Copics were used to color the image - I had no idea how to do a realistic rooster and this is what I came up with...

What??  You don't believe I captured the colors right??  Take a peak at the photo of my inspiration rooster on the bottom right!
The inside sentiment was simply
 typed out on my computer.
