Western Accordion Card by Juliet Arrighi, Guest Designer

I love the details of the western style - gingham and calico, leather and demin, silver conchos and turquoise jewelry.  I tried to put a number of those elements in this western style card.
By embossing the Horse Silhouette Oval with silver embossing powder on silver metallic cardstock, I was able to simulate the look of a concho.  The sentiment is embossed on the "belly band" that holds the card flat.  I wanted a bit of bandanna technique paper to show, but I couldn't find a white gel pen that was still working (what is it with those white gel pens?), so I reversed the technique, stamping (Wedding Roses Silhoutte) in white and highlighting in black.  You can see a corner of the writing panel on the inside.

Thanks for looking!
