Fabulous Friday with Sugar Creek Hollow

Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is upon us! This week I'm sharing with you a newer Sugar Creek Hollow image for a Father's Day card. Growing up, the rodeo at the country fair was a family favorite - it wasn't a fair without the rodeo as far as we were concerned!  =D  So this card is for my dad this year.

I started with last week's color challenge, but never got to finish it in time, so here it is this week. I wanted the badge to look like a real one but cutting out the circle in the background was going to be a real bugger. I opted instead to cut my own with nesties, then cut out the star from the image to mount over the top. A cowboy hat, sentiment and a little jute to resemble rope were all that I needed to give this a real western feel. Oh, but the background was so plain! I dug around in my embossing folders and ran across this paisley pattern that reminded me of the the red and blue kerchiefs you often see associated with cowboys. My dad's every day work kerchiefs were the same kind.

supplies ~ cardstock: The Paper Company (cream), SU! (Chocolate Chip), Martha Stewart (blue); jute: stash; images: Sugar Creek Hollow

This card also marks my last as a design team member with Sugar Creek Hollow. It has been a great experience working with Tracy's digis and a stretch for me as I tried my hand at vintage cards. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not, but at least I tried! Make sure you stop by the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe to pick up your freebie! Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by for a visit!
