Wagon Wheel - Gone Country

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Craft Your Passion challenge  this week and the theme  is 'Going Country'!  The  Challenge start date is Jan14th, 2013. I have a step son who has birthday coming up and I needed a masculine card so I choose a Doodle Pantry image from their stamps set called 'Wagon wheels', looks pretty country to me:O)  This set contains coloured and outline images, digital papers and sentiments.   For this card I used the coloured image of the wheel and 'popped' it up over-top of the background papers and twine.   The dark blue paper was from my stash and I scored it with my Stampin' Up score pad to give it some texture.' hard to see in the photo though!

Card Details:
Stamp Set: Wagon Wheels from Doodle Pantry, sentiment from Stampin Up
Die Cuts:   Spellbinders Nestabilities  deckled rectangles and beaded  circles: Memory Box 'bare branch'
punch: 1" square & Circle punch,  3/4"curly labels punch

  26. Great masculine card! I love how you lassoed the sentiment.
    The coiled lasso is fab. Great look to the embossing...It looks like siding on a shed!

  27. Fogot to tell you that the flower on the CAS card came either from Dollarama or Dollar Giant! They were a pack of several for a buck and also I got a matching set of flowers in the same patterned paper and style. I used them to make a
    co-ordinating set of cards for a friend...I have a couple of left over embellies...
    I am such a Dollarama junkie!

  28. Really beautiful, I love the cart wheel image and the papers and the string looks awesome
