My super cool cowboy is brought to you today via a tutorial and a challenge. I found a great one by my design team mate, Lois. She named the tutorial Matted Spellbinders Labels and you can find it here. I also played along with this week's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge called for Whisper White, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray. Mmmmm, neutral colors, my favorite! I traced around my die for my gray mat around my cowboy image. I placed a couple of mini brads in the top right hand corner and finished my card off with a little sponged embossing and some wrapped hemp twine on my card base.
I hope you have enjoyed my little stop on the hop. Off you go to Tangii now!
