Ride 'Em Cowgirl & BASIC GREY BLOG CANDY

This is the card that I made for the MFT American Idol auditions on Splitcoaststampers. The card was made using the Scenic Route paper pack Providence, kiwi kiss and black cardstock and ribbon from my stash. The stamp set is Ride em Cowgirl. I paperpieced her dress and the cactus which I stamped twice and layered on top of each other with mounting tape for dimension. The rest of the image was colored with copics.

I don't if I like the card really, I think the colors are outside my norm but I did get to ink up as stamp that hadn't seen ink yet so that was good!


Today's candy is awesome. It's the new Marrakesh 6x6 paper pack from Basic Grey. To win leave a comment on this post and mention this candy on your blog if you have one. If you are a subscriber, you may leave two comments. In California, it's pink Friday to stand up for schools as today is the day that the state is required to let teachers know if they will be laid off. Over 9,000 teachers are expected to get a layoff notice by today. So if you live in California, wear pink to support our teachers!

Your western theme is a great idea, and the colors are just right for it.
