{Teaser Time} Day 3

Tonight, the MY FAVORITE THINGS Design Team will be showing you THREE new sets: Inspired by the Wild West, Western Sentiments, and You Make My Day (this last months Triple Scoop Set). I made three different little projects to show you, so hang in there- this is a long post ;)

My Auntie is turning 65 this weekend, so I wanted to make her a little gift set. She is a horseman, country musician and has her own greenhouse, so I wanted this ensemble to reflect her personality. She loves bright colours too!
I used Western Sentiments, along with the new Large Leaf-filled Flourish die-namic (which I cut into sections to fit just right onto my card front), Barbed Wire Fence die (OMG!!!). The little rose basket was made using the Trapezoid Treat Box and covered with the Woven Basket die-namic. Inside the basket are both the Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose and the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose from last month's release, as well as grass from the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namic. The sentiment was stamped onto a sign from the Howdy Frames die set. I added Hemp Cord to attach the sign as well as tied around a Hot Fudge button.
The card itself features the following MFT supplies: Circle STAX 1, Circle STAX 2, Rounded Banner STAX, Fresh Cut Grass, Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose, and Hemp Cord.

Here is project number two! I have a dear lady in my life that is turning 80 this weekend as well, and we were invited to her special birthday supper, so I made this one just for her :)
I used Western Sentiments, the new Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose and Large Leaf-filled Flourish Die-namics. The sentiment was stamped in Razzle Berry ink onto Fishtail Flags STAX and Layers STAX die cuts. I used Hot Fudge CS.
This lady is a quilter, so I thought this paper from OA (Farmgirl) would be perfect! The numbers were cut using By The Numbers dies.

Here is a close-up of that big, beautiful rose!

 This is the inside, using another one of the sentiments from the Western Sentiments set.

This is my last card. I used You Make My Day, our new Hexagon STAX and Large Leaf-filled Flourish.

I did some sponging on the edges with Kraft Ink, and stamped the sentiment twice in Kraft and then Black Licorice, staggering the stamp a bit, giving it a shadow. 
Here is the inside:
