Howdy to all you Buckaroos,
**using "cowboy speak"**
Jist tether yer horse out front, come in, "n" set a spell! Have a cool glass a "sasperilly" with me. I was jist moseyin' in muh craft room thinkin' 'bout muh card for the nixt challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog which, this time, is Anything Goes! I reckon that's a purdy good idea for a challenge, right? The sky is the limit! Now, you have no excuses! There are as many ideas as varmints in the desert! LOL, LOL, LOL! I hope you'll loosen yer bootstraps "n" make a card or project as purdy as yer horse!
**out of "cowboy speak" **
I had so much fun making this card! It took me about four days, but I love the end result. I hope you do as well. Here is my Edwin, starring as the John Wayne of Magnolia! LOL
Isn't he just the cutest? I had the background in my stamp collection and thought it would be perfect with Lucky Edwin. I did do a little masking on his face. I wanted the card to be masculine yet not bare, so I added deep red, leather flowers inside and out, calico fabric, and some raffia. I also had some antique copper brads in my stash. I made the rope lasso and attached it to a tea stained, stamped tag. There are cowboy themed charms inside and out. I always finish the inside of my cards. The mountain peaks have been covered with Stickles so they sparkle. Here is another photo:
Also, inside, I have some chipboard strips that have been laser cut into the shape of barbed wire. It added a perfect rustic touch.
I hope you like my western themed card. Please leave a comment, if you wish, and your name will be entered into a drawing sponsored by Magnolia-licious!
