She Makes Her Own Way

This is the last challenge for Fashionable Stamping Challenge for the year 2012!  Our challenge:  Surprise Us!  Anything goes, so show us what you love.   In addition, the Design Team is playing Secret Santa. Each of us will be posting our project off to another team member! Our thanks to Joanna for suggesting this. I recently acquired a new plate of images from Artistic Outpost called Cowgirl Strength and was excited to ink them up!  I also used an image from The Outpost, which I stamped in Pumice Stone for a faded appearance. Colors were kept muted for a retro appearance.  Simple embellishments include an assortment of vintage buttons and a bit of burlap string.  I hope you will pop over to FSC to see all the gorgeous projects that my design team sisters are sharing for your viewing pleasure.  Here's hoping you, too, will submit a project for our challenge.  As the year draws to a close, I wish each of you a very Happy New Year.  Thank you for all your support.  Yvonne
