CCEE1121 Western wm

Hi everyone!

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Apparently today is John Wayne’s birthday, he would be 103 today! So in honor of his birthday our challenge hostess Shirley Quarry has challenged us to create a Western birthday card.

For my card I used MFT Stamps Fred Bear - Out West stamp set. I stamped Fred Bear onto my card and then masked him so I could stamp my cacti on either side of him. I then used my copic airbrush to add the color to the sky and ground. I used two MFT Die-namics on the front of my card, firstly the Die-namics Stacking Stars die and also the speech bubble from the Die-namics Say What Die & Stamp Set.

For the inside of my card I used a sentiment and the dies from the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die & Stamp Set. To finish off I add the Die-namics Open Zig Zag Border.
