JUGS46






This card is for the JUGS challenge this week which is to use the theme of the Wild, Wild, West. I don't have a whole lot of "wild west" stuff, but I do have this one horse stamp set from SU! My focal image was based on this tutorial by Michelle Zindorf, but I wanted mine to have more of a sunrise look, so I went with pinks and purples. The blue jeans paper is from DCWV, pink card stock, and horse stamp is SU! and the sentiment is from Verve. One a side note, I also entered this card in Verve's Release Sketch Challenge. I also used some torn Mullberry paper; I have not used this in forever! The metal oval was created using a product I am now officially in love with. My father gave me this aluminum tape he uses for chimney liners, and it is the most fabulous thing ever. I taped it onto a piece of cardstock, cut it out and embossed it with an oval nestie, stamped it (you have to use stazon, other ink rubs right off) and added copper brads. It looks like a metal piece but works just like paper. Awesome! I finished the card off by wrapping twine around the card to mimic rope.
