It's a Country Sort of Thing!

Country Flair is the theme over at Heart 2 Heart!  How much better does it get for me?

This is definitely vintage meets current!  Lovely Buckles is one of my all time favorite stamp sets from CTMH.  I have had it for some time and have used it on scrapbook layouts, cards, decor,,,, you name it!

I stamped the buckle and belt and then hand cut it.  I wish Cricut would do a 'scan and cut' feature on the new Explore.  That feature would make me run out and buy it immediately!  I HATE hand cutting with stamps, but sometimes ya' just gotta' cowboy up and get 'er dun!  So, I hand cut!  I wonder if this might be one of the new features that might be incorporated in the software update?  Anybody know anything about that?  Or maybe the new explore does this and I just don't know about it!!!

Ok, on with the card.  It's a simple one with lots of stamp sets!  The paisley print is from a Cuttlebug folder.  This is sort of a City Billboard look with a Country Flair!
