Bronc Bustin' Birthday!

My nephew's (by marriage) birthday is in a week and I wanted to make a card for him. He's almost as old as I am (we went to school together, weird huh??) and of course I could not use something kiddish, and he's cowboy up! all the way ~ so of course this set was perfect!!!

I used the split negative technique from SCS. If you have not tried it, you must! It is so simple and easy.

Anyway, I stamped the image twice. Once with Really Rust ink on the Creamy Caramel CS and once with Ruby Red ink on the More Mustard CS. Then I "split" them in half and used one half for each side, thus making 2 cards....

I layered that panel on to Chocolate Chip CS. I then stamped the star and horseshoe and the sentiment Best Wishes (from Stampendous!) in Close to Cocoa on Creamy Caramel CS. I layered that on to More Mustard CS and then on to Chocolate Chip CS. I then placed an eyelet on each side of the panel.

I then layered all that on to the panel of DP from the Au Chocolate series. I love that paper, and I wish that I would of ordered more! For some reason this paper reminded me of an old cowboy shirt so I had to use it! That is all layered on to a Really Rust card.

Hope you like it. And if you have not, try out the technique for the split negative, it's so easy!
