Don't Fence Me In!

A closer look....

How about that barbed wire fence?


I had such a fun time making this card. The image is from our lovely sponsor "The Paper Shelter". I just fell in love with her and thought she was so sassy in her boots and hat. I had a bit of scrap 'barn' paper and some burlap. I knotted a bit of  twill for my rope. My lovely barbed wire fence is a die cut from MFT. I love it and know I will use it many times more. I colored my image with Copics and Twin Markers. You can find both of these at our other lovely sponsor Marker Pop's. Our Challenge this week at ABC is "O" for open....that's right anything goes. There is no excuse not to enter a card! or a ????? cause anything goes!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: 
O give me land, lots of land, and the starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze

Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Gosh...how are you getting time to make all these wonderful cards! She's adorable. I just bought some boots for the baby at a yard sale across the street...more winter boots than anything, but I thought of your adorable image. I have seen that MFT die and will go check it out. Maybe I could make something similar....it's really cute.
