A Cowboy Card for Dad

My card today meets 2 challenges. First up is Oozak's first challenge of "anything goes". There is also a challenge over on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog this month to make a card for the ODBD April challenge to use an animal on your card. OWH is also asking for masculine cards so I made this one for Dad. I'm sure there are a lot of dads out there who will enjoy this cowboy image. The image is by Inkadinkado and I colored all 3 with Copics and matted them with scraps of gold cardstock. The background is cherry cobbler, and the star border at the top was done with a SNSS die, cut in turquoise and gold, with the stars swapped out for a little color interest. The sentiment is a stamp from MFP, done with word window and fancy label punches, and another little black star added just for fun.  I added some paper piercing to the black panel which you can probably see better if you click the photo to enlarge it. I don't know why I used this color combination, it just seemed to work as I was creating.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Copics used: YR30, YR31, YR18, YR15, YR12, R46, 100

Now this is what I am talking about! Wow or Yippie or some other fun western saying. I totally love this and so would my DH. Reminds me of the WWW man - I need to go dig him out of the stamp chest. Fun card! Hugz.

sometimes the creative process takes you to places and colors out of your comfort zone....but often...like here....that is a GREAT thing
