Cowgirls Rule

     You would think now that my counter tops are in my craft room I would get busy organizing it....but after so many weeks of not being able to play I find myself sitting and playing around instead :)
     My daughter and I leave for the ranch in a few months and that has me thinking 'western' so I fooled around with a card I have been thinking of taking to the office manager when I go.  The challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs was to make your own embellishment so I stamped my horse onto polyshrink and made a medallion for my card.  I can't believe I am entering this without using one of their stamps (of which I own many) but this is the mood I was in today, I'll play with some of their lovely stamps later this week.  Also saw that over at CES Challenges they were asking for cards with red and this certainly fits that bill.


     I used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom of my cardstock and then ran it through a paisley EF.  My stamp is by Inkadoo and stamped on plastic that I shrank down.  I then used some punches and a die cut to place layers underneath my embellishment.  The sentiment is from my computer and I used brads to attach it to the card.

  12. The "free spirit" portrayed by this horse image shows so well in this card, and I was blown away by the red BG border punched and embossed. Love that multi layered place where the polyshrink horse sits - focuses the attention on him at first glance - great positioning and super card!
