I Brake for Cowboy Boots


Hi, Braker Fans. Sorry I missed posting last week but it was a hectic one and I was on vacation too. Now I need a vacation after my vacation…LOL My DT card this week is all about my lifestyle lately. My DH and I adopted 2 Mustangs from the BLM a couple weeks ago and they were delivered last Thursday. I had so much shopping to do to get ready for them. We had to get tack, hay, a new gate for the corral, bedding, etc. I was so tired every night. Sorry to say though I hardly got a chance to sit in my craft studio all week which was part of my plan.

Anyhoo…on to my card. I used this sweet stamp called “Cowboy Boots” from the IBFS store and since I’m a country lover it’s a perfect stamp for me. I love my boots and hats and they are not always for looks, they are for working. They truly have a purpose if you live in the country.
I saw an adorable red cowboy hat at Murdoch’s in the children’s section and I thought it was the sweetest thing. So it inspired me to color my hat red. And I added a little Light Blue Viva Décor to the feather icon to make it look like a Turquoise stone.
I used Bazzill cardstock for my base and mating. My DPs are from My Mind’s Eye, Sunshine collection. I distressed around my image and DP panels with Walnut Stain and jute twine was wrapped around the card several times and tied in a bow. I finished it with a few Prima flowers and pearls.
These are the Copics I used to color my image.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill
Designer Papers – My Mind’s Eye
Distress Ink – Ranger
Pearls/Gems – Recollections; Viva Décor
Flowers – Prima

I'm entering this card in the Make It Monday - Linky Party challenge.
