Barbara: The Creative Cowgirls Challenge, Jan. 16,2011

First I want to thank all of you who chose to enter The Creative Cowgirls  First Challenge in 2011. We had over 100 entries.YA HOOOOO.  I hope that you will continue to have fun and enter our bi weekly challenges:)
Now on to our second challenge...  This is a color challenge. Please use the colors TURQUOISE and BLACK or BROWN on your card or paper craft.
Our sponsor for this challenge is : Tellen's Place. They sent us this adorable image to use on our project.

I had fun using my new Spellbinder dies and Cuttlebug embossing plate. I also made the button from a new button die. Then I added  liquid glass to make it shiny and resemble a button.Of course I had to add a little bling here and there. My favorite technique is paper piecing even though it is a little tricky with digital images :) I also am intrigued with layering. I think it just emphasizes the focal point. One of my favorite color combos is turquoise and brown. After I cut out the oval, I swiped the sides with a brown stamp pad. I did the same with the center oval and then distressed the plaid design too. Inside verse says: Everyone deserves to Sparkle...
