Quilting Joys for a Cowboy?

The challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends Week 104 was suggested by Linda....she wants us to use  stitching/real or faux.  I decided to use faux stitching by piercing holes and drawing in lines for the stitches.  I wanted the card to look "homespun" so I did stitches freehand and they do look homemade, but maybe too much so.  I used a bandanna stamp from Mark's Finest Papers "A Cowboy Thing" showing it as a quilt design...stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk Ink on ivory CS. Colored in some of the design with blue pencil.  Added a border of stitches stamped with GKD "Nana's Needlework" and also used a sentiment from this stamp set keeping withe quilt theme. Card base of SU Brilliant Blue shows off the images.

Have a great weekend!
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
