Heidi's Birthday Card

Hello! Well, I think this is one of those cards you say "I guess...." The first time I stamped it, my ink needed to be re-inked, so the image wasn't dark enough...but I didn't realize this until AFTER I brayered the image. Then the second time I stamped and brayered the image, I added a color I think I shouldn't have. So then I thought I would try a third time. I think it is fine, I just wish there was some rust in the ground. I think the sky is a little boring too, but didn't know what to add. So, "I guess..."

I used Stampin' Up! Bronc Buster. Cool image of the cowboy and horse. I inked him in Versamark, then Close to Cocoa so I could emboss-resist. I heat embossed the image with clear powder. Then I brayered the sky with Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and Not Quite Navy. The ground is Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Basic Black. Then I started to assemble my card and added punches and Hodgepodge Hardware! I used the retired Outlaw DSP and a strip of the retired Round Up SSK. Cardstock colors are Creamy Caramel and Not Quite Navy. I doodled with Black Marker. Hope you like it! Most importantly, I hope Heidi likes her birthday card to go along with her birthday tin in an earlier post!
Happy Stampin'
