Yee-Haw! I've Been Published!

About 9 months ago I submitted this card for the Stamp and Scrap Arts Magazine's call for Country Western projects.  I had a feeling it was selected for the magazine because I sent a stamped return envelope with it and never received it back!  Woo Hoo! You can see it in the July 2011 issue on page 30.

All of the stamps used on this card are by DRS Designs.  The Cowboy Garb (1121K) was colored with Copic Markers.  Don't you just love the colors on this card?  Nothing says Country Western to me like brown and teal! I masked off the edges around the image with Post-It Notes and then sponged around it with light teal ink. I matted it with teal and brown cardstock and added a fun brown and white polka dot ribbon to the bottom of the matted image.

The card front was simply made from teal cardstock.  I adhered the matted image on an angle to the center of the card front and stamped the In The Accessories Greeting (155D) on an angle as well just above it.  I embellished the lower right and the lower left sides of the card front with brown petite brads as shown. 

The star embellishment was actually created using the Star Ribbon Slide (963D).  I heat embossed it with teal embossing powder and then after cutting it out, I tied the brown and white polka dot ribbon thru it.  I matted it on a brown scalloped Nestie circle and then adhered it to the upper right portion of the stamped image.  The card front was then adhered to a brown A2 sized cardstock base. 

Really like this card? Then you might also like this other Country Western card I made with some of the same stamps, but in red and brown.  You can see it HERE.
Thanks for letting me share my good news with you today!
Hope you have a good one!
