Cards for Men - Challenge #9 - "Texture"

Good Morning Everyone, Im not sure if youve seen this new blogger design, but Im really confused as to whats going on, if I have a hiccup I do hope you will excuse me as its all a learning curve for me. Anyway this fortnights Challenge over on Cards for Men is "Texture" and we are being sponsored by Kenny K,

And theyve generously have offered us 4 digi images for winners choice,
and this is what they say about themselves:-

I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey, 

Wow thats some prize Im sure you will agree and here is my card.

For my card I have used this saucy lady "Cheyenne" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her then used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut her out, and used a larger one for the mount out of brown card. 
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card, and for my two papers I have used DCWV's "All about Boys" stack, the papers are cowboys ones and go brilliantly with the image, then on the other side I have used one of the co-ordinations papers thats been put through a cuttlebug and then sanded down to give it texture.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre and the sentiment at the bottom on the right handside, to finish of I have used some rope and twisted it into a circle and stuck in the top left hand corner, at the bottom is a horseshoe and a boot.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will go and visit the "Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot" and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Texture" Challenge.
