Happy Birthday, Cowboy!

Used the sketch at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to make this birthday card for a cowboy friend.
This Vintage Label 18 stamp looks so great when heat embossed that I grab it every time I need a masculine western card!
I stamped extra ink onto every star to make them look aged and dry embossed the bottom to give it some texture similiar to jeans.
 (I don't have a folder that actually looks like denim!) 

This "belt buckle" has been a hit every time I've used it!


I will also enter this in the challenges at:
One Stop Craft Challenge (Stitching, Real or Faux, I used both)
Sentimental Sundaes (Dry Embossing)
Party Time Tuesday (Anything Goes)
Cupcake Craft Challenges (Recycled, the buttons were on an actual old shirt!)

I love that embossed belt buckle card, such creativity! It looks so striking embossed and you put such effort into those stars and the embossed bottom of the card. Really nice job on this one.
