Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge # 90 - Use a Border Punch

Happy Saturday, You know what that means, it is time for another Challenge with Speedy Fox.  This weeks challenge is to use a border punch. I was excited about this challenge since I have a new technique from Technique Junkies to use. The technique is called curvy borders. After several tries I got it and I love it. Make sure to check out Technique Junkies Newsletter for a subscription you won't be disappointed.

Today I am sneak peaking one of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. January stamp sets "Cowgirls Rule". This is a totally fun stamp set and I can't wait to create more with it. make sure to come back and visit us Tuesday through Friday for our Monthly Blog Hop for your chance to win one of these sets. Back to my card. I used Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. Hazelnut Tan and Snow Storm cardstock for my card. I stamped my image onto a white oval die cut with Brushed Corduroy distressed ink pad and colored the words with Copic Markers. I then punched from white cardstock as well Martha Stewarts border punch and added it to my die cut, using the technique from the TJ Newsletter from December 2011/January 2012. I then mounted it to the base of my card. I then colored and cut out my cowgirl hats and mounted them with pop dots. I added a tri-color ribbon and then finished off the card with gemstones. I thought those would be perfect since the song "Like a Rhinestone Cowboy" kept running through my head the whole time I was making this card.

For the inside of my card I put white cardstock and stamped my sentiment and then added some more cowgirl hats. I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping and commenting, I hope to see you again. Make sure you join the fun for a chance to win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co, Have a blessed day.
