As well as the samples I have made using the images

Leanne used K & Co paper as well as brown dot paper from Bo Bunny. Using a Marvy circle punch and blowing up the image to 4" she punched out the image and inked the edges with brown Distress ink in "Vintage Photo". Next just around the brown belly band she tied a piece of twine she got at her local craft store then adhered to the center of the card. She stamped the word Howdy (the stamp is from B & J Art Stamps but you can use the font "Bleeding Cowboy) in brown then pop dotted to center of the card and on either side added 4 red buttons she got in a bag from JoAnns. This is an easy card that only takes minutes to do!
Kick Up Your Heels Card
For this card Leanne started with a piece of Bo Bunny Paper as her base then cut out a belly band from the Bo Bunny Brown Dot basic card stock and adhered to the center of card front. She took the image of the cowgirl on the horse and enlarged it to 5" tall and using the font "Bleeding Cowboy" wrote Kick Up your Heels is brown and grey (just highlight the words and choose the font color you want). Then inked the edges with her "Vintage Photo" Distress ink and placed on ceter of card front. Next she tied around a piece of cord as her ribbon embellishment and finished with 4 blue bling she got at her local scrapbook store (Archivers).
Now go to the next site and collect the First word plus your FREE collage sheet.
