Cowboy Up


In my mind, this was going to be the absolute best and "coolest" card you had probably ever seen! BUT, when it started going on paper, I just don't know what happened to it! LOL! The object here was to have the fence kinda "stand out" to make it look dimensional. Well, after cutting out the fence (which by the way, is NOT easy) it just did not want to bend like I wanted it to. Of well, hope you enjoy looking anyway. This is for all the real cowboys and of course, all the wanna-be cowboys out there!
The image is from Yehaw by CTMH. I used Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and some CTMH DP.
Thanks for stopping by.................
