InkspirationChallenge #13 - Country Stud

I had some fun with Makeesha's Inspiration challenge this week.  I just had to use the Rustic Rooster stamp set again.  I was going for an elegant country theme, I like how it came together.  So to create my country theme I used my sewing machine and stitched around the edge and then used some Hemp twine as an embellishment.  Stitched a creme flower button to the wide ribbon and cut the end with my pinking shears.  I also used my new Blossom Nestabilities as a mat for the main image.  Hope you like it.

Key Supplies:
Stamps: Rustic Rooster, Friends 24-7
Card: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Kraft, Parisian Breeze DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Sahara Sand
Accessories: 3.2cm Striped Grossgrain Ribbon, Button, Brads, Sewing Machine, Hemp Twine, Piercing Tool, Cotton, Needle, Pinking Shears, Blossom & Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Dimensionals
Thanks for taking a peek,
