Best in the West ~ Ink it Pink Challenge

Happy Father's Day, everyone!  Today, I wanted to share the card I made for my dad for Father's Day this year.  He loves all things western and cowboy-ish, so this is what I created for him:

This card measures 5.75" square.  I got this cowboy silhouette and the barbed wire from the Silhouette Online Store.  I thought this weathered wood fence background was perfect for the card, and I added a little bit of red bandanna paper as a border.  It's kind-of hard to see, but I also added a sentiment at the bottom, which I got from Pink by Design's Best in the West Stamp Set

I used the same papers to decorate the inside and repeated the barbed wire border along the bottom.  The YEE HAW! sentiment and the cowboy stamp are from Pink by Design's Cowgirl Up Stamp Set.  The Father's Day sentiment is from Pink by Design's Our Fathers Stamp Set.

I used lots of ink to help the pieces of the card pop, and my dad's card was all done.  I'm hoping he'll love it and display it proudly in his western-decorated room. :)

This card is also perfect for Pink by Design's Ink it Pink Challenge!  This week's challenge is to create a masculine card or go link up anything manly HERE.
