I created my base following the Z box fold tutorial, then moved on to the panels. For the faux leather technique, I stamped a small map and compass, and die cut for my inside panel. Next up was the bandana tutorial, die cut for the front panel and cut into strips. I stamped and colored the boots, then used the Out of the Box Nestabilities technique to extend the toe of the boot and flowers out from the image panel. I embossed the image panel, left the die on and added a soft turquoise around the boot. I cut the hat, cowgirl and Happy Birthday sentiment with my Slice and sponged some color on the hat. Stamped a sentiment in the center panel, assembled the pieces and added some copper brads to complete. This is definitely a record for me, six techniques for one card and lots of fun! TFL

Six techniques on one card, that is quite something, Carla. You're quite right about the two TLCs being made for each other, and I love that blue you used for the bandanna combined with the soft leather colours. How cool that yesterday's Inkling then gave you the perfect fold to combine them for today's WT without covering up too much of either of them. Great die for the leather panel, with a twisted rope feel to it. What a fabulous Western card in every little detail.

Amazing!!! Absolutely Amazing!!!!! I'll bet you're still breathing hard from doing all that. I think my mind would start smoking about halfway through trying to figure out how to work all that in together. Everything is Perfect together. And it's Beautiful! Love it!

Carla this is awesome. I love the amazing color, love the stunning stamp, love the silhouette of the cowgirl and love the faux leather, bandana and fancy Z Box fold. I am so glad you were able to use that fold on your card with SCS putting that one out as the featured tutorial. Your card is amazing and every bit of the techniques all work perfectly for this cowgirl card. Six amazing techniques on this wonderful card! I am so impressed! Way to go Carla!!! You knocked this card out to the country!
