Wild West Christmas


Second and final post for Flourishes Release challenges. This one is for the Wild West Challenge your card just has to be a little on the rugged side. Use faux leather, “lasso” in some fun trim or give your creation a distressed look — you choose. 
So I went for it ...... I used my cb paisley eb and TH Tea Dye ink, distressed the edges and sponged with Black Soot. I printed a picture of a Sheriff's badge and fussy cut. Made a lasso encompassing the badge and the image from Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. The sentiment is from the same set. 
I'm hurrying because I had to get these in before work now! I'm picking up Adrieene right after work from Illinois. I can't wait I haven't seen her since Spring.
Have a wonderful day.
