Cheery Lynn Texas Rose

I'm sharing a card inspired by this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge Handmade Flowers and the state dies from the new North American Release.  This began as a Cowboys football card but I can't seem to make a card without flower, so I added some yellow roses and went another way.  My 11 year old recognized the Cowboys star and colors and seemed a bit annoyed that I'd make a card that celebrated a team other than  his favorite.  

It might be difficult to see but the large blue square was cut with the Square Pierce & Cut Tool die so that the pierced edge matches the edge of the blue Pierced Star.  I then layered a piece of white card stock that I distressed with a tool and distress ink.  The wood grain is a piece of design paper from Prima.  

Most of the die cuts were colored with distress ink.  The Tea Roses were cut with a light yellow card stock, sprayed with glitter spray, and aged with a little brown distress ink on the edges.  The white rose centers and the babies breath flowers are from the Embellishments #2 set.  The boots from the Arizona Cowboy set were glued to brown card stock and then cut out so that the detail would stand out.  I just love these boots, the detail is amazing.
