The Tim Holtz Way


It's Fathers Day card or a Male card at Simon Says Stamps Challenge and the Team are showcasing Tim Holtz. I so admire all things Tim and all of those who produce such wonderful creations it just that I'm not one of them. There are aspects of my card I love. I used the fabulous Wild West set from Simon Says Stamps, only trouble was I wanted to use them all.I made the middle mat using distress inkpads and then I used the Gridlock embossing folder



After all the stress of making the first card I then decided to make a CAS, this is where this set comes into it own. Although I now wish I moved the ribbon a bit farther in but then the sentiment box would be too near the cowboys head. I had some Hero Arts pearls in brown I used to balance the white space.
Now don't forget we have a fabulous prize and its not necessary to use Tim Holtz to win it.
