BC152 - There's A New Sheriff in Town

Annabelle Sketch challenge found HERE and it's PRIZE time again so be sure to check it out.



Hi Everyone...It's Friday and time once again for the Blogger Challenge.  This week is a "Sketch Challenge" and believe me I was (challenged) at first because I couldn't quite figure this sketch out.  Thankfully our List Mom, Lisa pointed me in the right direction (I hope) and below is what I came up with.  I flipped the sketch to accomodate the images that I wanted to use.

While viewing some of my favorite blogs I came across this card by Shannan Teubner and just fell in love with the scene she created.  Since I just happen to have that same set I couldn't resist my own little Western Themed card.  I'm going to be sending this one off to someone who just recently moved to a new town.  I think she'll get a kick out of it.

My card base is Sage Shadow layered with Chocolate Chip and a layer of the old (Outlaw DP - retired SU) that I really love.  I distressed the edges with some Pumpkin Pie ink.  My main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black in and colored with Prisma color pencils.  I stamped Sprinkle Cowgirl first, then masked her and stamped the town behind her.  I layered this panel to some Pumpkin Pie card stock, tied some linen thread that I rubbed over the Pumpkin Pie ink pad and added the star element (stamped in Garden Green on Creamy Caramel cs).  I also added 3 Pumpkin brads, and some designer ribbon (retired SU) to complete my card.

Don't forget to stop by the other BC members blogs and leave them some comment lovin too.  Have a wonderful weekend.
