rustic cowboy

Where did the time go? It seems like I blinked and it's now February. This year has really gotten off to a slow start. I have not been able to spend much time either at the craft desk or here on my blog. I did manage to squeeze in little bits and pieces and here is one of them

Papercraft Star has a rustic challenge this week, and I thought this picture looked perfect for it. It's a vintage cowboy from The Graphics Fairy.
The base of the card has been embossed with the woodgrain folder from Sizzix, inked and overlaid with gauze (couldn't find my burlap stash) and a fence cut from corrugated board. The topper has been stitched and how do you like the sentiment!

The card is finished with natural twine, ribbons, and a chipboard star. The star is a Sizzix die cut laid atop a circle cut from a Lifestyle Crafts die. The circle is coated in crackle accent, and the star with distress stickles mixed with some crystal stickles for a little sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hilda this is the cutest card ever!!! Using the corrugated board for the fence is brilliant! I love the way you stiched the rope onto the card! I'm inspired to make one for my son! It really is a pleasure to have you playing along with us at Papercraft Star!
Kindest regards,
