Howdy Partner!

Thanks for dropping by!  This card was created for the newest challenge over at Our Creative Corner.  This week, the theme is "It's a Howdy Challenge."  We are to create a country or western project based on this beautiful country-inspired photograph.  In addition, we are to make sure to include plaid, check or tartan in some way.  
For my card, I chose this image of a lady on a horse by Stamp Francisco and layered her over plaid designer paper.  The sentiment by Stampa Rosa was stamped on corrugated cardboard. The star is by Oxford Impressions.  Embellishments include tartan plaid braided ribbon, copper Liquid Pearls, and Idea-ology binder clip, vintage lace, a snippet of burlap and some vintage buttons that pull out the colors of the plaid background paper.  What a fun challenge! I'm planning to send this card to my best girlfriend, who recently broke her ankle.  She's a horsewoman and I'm sure she is hopeful she will be able to ride again soon.  Thanks again for all your visits. Best wishes, Yvonne

I love how you've used the photograph as the inspirationg here - your interpretation is wonderful! I don't suppose I'd ever have to do a cowboy theme (we don't have many in the UK!) but if I did, I would want it to look like this! I really love the plaid background and ribbon you've used and such great texture here Yvonne. Gorgeous.
