This card is for my Uncle who has written four Western novels which are all published on-line. Since he was a boy, he has been an avid reader and fan of Western novels and movies. He has had a pretty intense medical situation over the last couple of yrs and is now recovering from some pretty intense surgery. It may take him a yr or more to recover d/t his medical situation. I have been sending him and my Aunt cards but I think this cowboy themed card will bring him a big smile. :D
I incorporated three challenges into my card today. Today's Mix53 to use 3 layers on your card. I used Gelatos, three inks, newsprint, natural papers, journal page paper, cork, burlap, etc. I think I've got the 3 layers covered. :) My card is also for today's F4A206 to use the word "love" on your card, as well as, yesterday's WT challenge to use a horse on your card. I enjoyed making this collage-style card as I haven't made one in a while.
Thank you for looking! :)

It really shows how much you enjoyed making this, Gabby! There are so many wonderful details in it. I always love book pages, but I think my favourite thing might be the way you have trees stamped on the green card you cut the treeline border from too. The cork looks pretty cool!
