This card was made for my DH for our 40th wedding anniversary.  The chicken wire and brick are two different patterned paper designs.


That rooster struttin’ his stuff was colored with Copics.  Isn’t he handsome!  hehe  The Mr. and Mrs. were fussy cut and the edges outlined with a black Copic marker.
