COF June Challenge

"
Barb's challenge for us:
June is Dairy Month in Wisconsin. I remember when I was growing up there were dairy breakfasts at farms in our area and my 4-H club had a pie and ice cream social every June. Now--I am not sure that everyone has a dairy themed image. But--if you have something farm related--cow, chickens, ducks, barns, fields, etc. or dairy products related--ice cream, cheese, milk, eggs, cream puffs (the Wisconsin State Fair favorite!), or use your own imagination to honor the dairy farmer. Do you have some farm related DSP or an embossing folder? Chicken wire, barbed wire, farm animals, etc.--please be sure to use that."

I made use of some of my newest Graphic 45 paper. I have had this rooster for quite some time in my collection, which I use for all my Emmaus agape items I love to make. "De Colores" is one of the main songs used on an Emmaus weekend, and in the lyrics it sings about the rooster, the hen, and the baby chicks. I've tried to capture a French Country look in the choice of my colors and the sunflower.
