Rhinestone Cowboy . . .

 Please scroll down for my post about the Mint Motif stamp WINNERS!

Hee hee!!  I couldn't help it, as I was finishing up this card today that song came to mind so I just went with it! :)  Happy Monday - November already??? REALLY?????  It's just unbelievable to me.  But since it is November it is time for a new Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew Challenge and it's my turn to pick the challenge.  So I picked one thing I have a hard time with - making a monochromatic card

Check out the Kitchen Sink Stamps blog for the "rules" and details on how to play along - there are PRIZES involved so why not give it a try?!

For my card I used Multi-Step Cowboy Hat from Kitchen Sink Stamps and Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch. I even sponged around the edge of my main panel (which also generally scares me - lol!)  The ink recipe for my hat is listed below.  I just love how you can curve the clear stamps to fit them where you want them!   This card makes me giggle though.  When I was in college in the south I make a conscious efford not to pick up the "y'all" thing.  We yankees are known for "you guys". ha!  I'll have to send this to a southern friend of mine.
