Wild and Wonderful Noon-Time Challenge!

Are you ready for a fun challenge with a little Howdy and Yeehaw thrown in? Flourishes is kicking off this fun-filled, fast-paced challenge challenge at high noon. It's one more chance to win their entire September release. Get ready for the.......


HOW TO PLAY: 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! Upload to SCS? Use the keyword FLLCSEPTRW2 and don’t forget to link up your creation HERE over on the Flourishes Blog using the Inlinkz widget!

Need a little inspiration? I created a card that reminded me a wee bit of the rugged west using Flourishes' new stamp set called Cowboy Christmas!

I stamped on Flourishes Classic White using Memento Tuxedo Black and then let the fun begin coloring it up with Copic markers! (See supplies below for details on which color collections I used). I added a mix of decorative paper from the Glitz Happy Travels, Authentique Genuine, Jillibean Soup and My Mind's Eye Fiddlesticks collections. Add some stitching, some twine and a fun western style brad and..... ta da! I love this set because being from Montana where cowboys are everywhere, it's nice to have this kind of set for Christmas creations!

Here's a closeup!

And, here's a closer look at the fun sentiment!

And that, my friends, is it! While you’re hopping, be sure to check out these fine ladies' creations as well!
