Southwest Cowboy sneak peak

I made this card for the color challenge CC227 at Splitcoaststampers.  We were to use Stampin Up colors Crushed Curry, Burmuda Bay, and Dusty Durango, which retire today, June 30.  When I saw this color combo, I immediately thought of using the soon-to-be-released "Southwest Cowboy" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers.  Being from Iowa and now living in Ohio, I can't relate to cowboys, deserts, or the Southwest, but I love this stamp set!  For my card, I created the scene by using Burmuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and a few other ink colors from Tim Holtz.  The Crushed Curry background was embossed with the Tim Holtz "collage" embossing folder.  I completed the card by adding Burmuda Bay ribbon, a rope "lasso", and a star brad.
