Cute Card Thursday - #146 Out with the Old!

Happy Thursday!

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is "Out with the Old." As I used to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I decided to break out some of my old favs. 

Stamps: Bronc Buster, Wanted (SU!)
Paper: Really Rust, Round Up Scrapbooking Kit
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Copics
Accessories: Bazzill Buttons, Rope, Spellbinders Labels 4

I had a tan button, but wanted more color, so I used my Copics to add color to the button. 

I used the sketch from the Midnight Madness Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check back Saturday when Sugar Creek Hollow resumes their Saturday Challenges with new prizes and more opportunities to play along.

WOW Julie, this card is amazing. I love the stamps you chose, they go perfectly with the design paper and the rope accent is just to die for! I am a huge country fan, so this card is right up my alley!!!! Thanks so much for joining us at Midnight Madness.

Julie, this card is so cool! I love the "rope" around it and the cute little button. The colors are so nice together as well. I didn't know you could color a button with copic markers. I'll have to try that.
Hope to see you again for the next challenge.
Keep crafting!

I have this stamp and loved using it.. but haven't used it in a long time... you did it justice by your layout... and it is fun going in and using an old stamp we haven't used before.... great job...
Hugs, Jean

I was a SU demo for 6 years, and that is STILL one of my favorite images. Your take on this sketch is great, and that was brilliant and creative to add color to the button with your Copics! I LOVE those Copics!! Thanks so much for playing along with the MMSC. It's great to have you! Wonderful card!

Fabulous Card Julie! If at any time you would like to get rid of this stamp I'd like it. Your card is great with all the rich colors and the colored button was a great touch! How did you get the small flecks. Is that embossing powder from the flourish? - it looks great like the horse is kicking up dirt.
Thanks for joining us this week at Midnight Madness sketch challenge.
