This blog hop features the new set Southwest Cowboy. I used the cowboy on horse image and embossed it and stamped the cactus in a lighter color behind that. Cardstocks are Mark's Finest papers also, the wood looking panel is a linoleum sample from Home Depot :), I embossed the sentiment and horses on that and then added some braided linen thread for a rope look.
For your next stop on the blog hop, please stop by and see Julia

I left a comment and think I might have left too soon before the word verification showed up, so I'll just say it again! I couldn't believe you used linoleum for this card! That looks amazing along with that braided twine! I love the little details like the stars and eyelets and corner treatments. They all combine for one great western card!
