Mark's Finest Papers

For my card I chose to use the silhouette cowboy image. I stamped him in soft suede ink onto some Basic Grey designer paper. I used a labels 4 spellbinder die to cut the image from soft suede cardstock and make a frame. Layered the frame over some Creative Imaginations cowboy themed designer paper and that is layered over some Stampin-Up cajun craze striped paper.

The card base is cajun craze and I layered soft suede over that. I used some vanilla twill ribbon and stamped the barbed wire image from this set in soft suede ink. I sponged some cajun craze  ink to give it a more rustic look. It's tied with twine. Cut a Spellbinders pennant and stamped my sentiment.

The cowboy boots are cut from the designer paper.  Click Here for another sample I made with this set. 

Well that's my sample for today. See you again tomorrow for the final day of the hop. Now onto MariLynn's blog.
