Wanted for Alex

I made this card for Alex who is an injured officer who is also a friend of Barbie50. I was browsing the forums last night and found this link that Barbie POSTED asking people to make cards.
I did this last year for my mom's 85th birthday, it's a great feeling knowing that people are willing to send cards to people they don't even know.

I cased this great CARD by Vickie Y.
I used SU Chocolate Chip cs as the base. I layered with The Paper Company Metallic Brown cs. I also used unknown teal dp, sponged with SU Chocolate Chip ink. I used the CB Textile folder on a strip of the Metallic Brown cs, layered on a piece of SU Taken With Teal cs. I wrapped 2 pieces of ribbon around the metallic cs & tied a knot. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I also added 3 gold adhesive rhinestones to the bottom. I was given these great western images from my pen pal Connie (KittyKat) on SCS, this was the perfect opportunity to use one. I colored with my primascolor pencils, mineral spirits & also sponged around the edges, then layered with SU Chocolate Chip cs.

Here's to Alex on getting better.
