Thursday Noon Time Challenge

WildandWonderfulChallenge
For this noon 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. Just make sure your card is worthy of the wild west! Please use keyword FLLCSEPTRW2 when you upload your creation.
I tried my hand at the leather look.  I used a piece of light brown card stock, from Prism I believe and debossed it with a paisley embossing folder.  I then went over the panel with a sponge and a Memento Dew Drop in Jumbo Java to make the depressions stand out.

I used the same card stock and stamped the sentiment then cut it out with a Fancy Tags Two from Spellbinders.  I inked inside the die with Jumbo Java.  I stamped the horseshoe from the Cowboy Christmas set on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out closely after coloring with Copics.  It’s popped up over the tag.  At the other side I punched out several holly leaves and sprigs using Martha Stewart punches adding some metal bells and tying it all together with some kraft jute
The Copic Collections used:
Green Grass CollectionReds-Gr-1
Warm-Neutrals
