A Cowboy and his Horse

I made this card for a Guy Card Swap with my Little Debbie's Stampin' Up! ladies over on the East coast! Guy cards are always hard for me, so I thought this swap would be a fantastic challenge.
I started with the Bronc Buster set. I knew that I wanted to use red riding hood, baja breeze, and Close to Cocoa. Then I threw in the neutral of whisper white. I stamped the horse and cowboy in Close to Cocoa craft ink and heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. I glued on the lasso made from linen thread with the 2-way glue pen. I used the ticket corner punch and added silver brads to the corners. I layered my card stock, attached it to my base, and then stamped the horse shoe image in close to Cocoa classic ink.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
