Happy Friday Moxxie friends!

Today I'm so excited to share a fun new page with you featuring a bit of western flair.  This collection is really fantastic!  Here is what I created:

The stitched flourish was cut from the "100% Western" sheet:

I also adore the denim pattern paper and the burlap patterns along with the red paisley, stripes and checks.  The versatility is endless!  So, the inspiration for the page came from the photo.  I had been waiting to scrap this one since I took it in early October.  It was taken on a whim and I absolutely loved it!  The hay and wagon meshed perfectly with this line!

To anchor the flourish, I used the circular sticker and added a few wood veneers from Studio Calico.  They felt a bit spur-like to me.  They were inked with Biscotti PowderPuff Chalk Ink from Quick Quotes.  I used Coconut White PowderPuff Chalk Ink to add a bit of interest to the edges of my brown layer underneath.

The die cuts that come with this line are always so fun to work with!  Here you'll see the denim circle that I backed with the red paisley print.  I then used a Martha Stewart Doily punch on the denim paper again.  

To finish that embellishment, I added a small iTop brad covered with the burlap paper.  The ticket was punched and I used burlap ribbon behind it as my pull and attached with my Tiny Attacher.

The three red star circles in the bottom left are stickers from the collection and the "Rough and Rowdy" and "Yee-Haw" sentiments are die cuts as well as the red paisley scalloped border.

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented Ange Weisbeck.



Thanks so much for stopping on over today!  Have a super scrappity  (stay healthy - Super Bowl) weekend!!!

Brilliant Rhonda!!! Love the "spurs" and the stitching. These papers have a great denim and leather feel. They will also make good guy cards.
