Jenny Gropp - you are here! 
Are you loving the new bandana die and all the western inspired stamps? This die is super detailed with lots of piercings and stitched edges and cuts beautifully! I covered a good portion of the detail by layering the sentiment in the center, so here it is below. Lots of possibilities! 

 Love that this sentiment can easily work for a guy or girl... just change up your color scheme to give it a completely different feel. I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my MISTI to double stamp to ensure a dark crisp imprint. I wrapped the jute string around the card front, securing it using ScorPal tape, the loose ends are hidden under the sentiment circle. I added lots of layers using my Perfect Layer Rulers.

On the inside I added a simple Thanks sentiment. the little rope piece is from the new Howdy Die and the star is from the center of the bandana die.
