Hi and welcome! Please give me a minute to dust off this old blog - this is probably the longest I've gone without posting a card, which is really, really frustrating because I'm just coming up on the end of two weeks off work and had great intentions of spending heaps of time making cards. Well, the mojo and creativity disagreed.
Anyway, I spent a few hours the other day making this card (yes, a few hours!) and it uses the latest sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches. We're back and we're back with a bang because we have three new DT members joining us for the next 6 months. I'm not going to tell you who they are and I urge you to head over to the blog and check them out.
Today's sketch is courtesy of the delightful Amy O'Neill and it's a good one! I decided to use the circle as a negative space and broke out a couple of NBUS sets.
I'm playing along with the color challenge at MFT Stamps as well, which is why I didn't create a scene behind my cowgirl. To be honest, I did have a scene all made with grass and sky and then realised it used colors not in the color challenge, so decided to go really simple and have a plain gray background.
I colored up my image in the challenge colors and then used the co-ordinating dies to die-cut the images. The white panel was die-cut with an inside/out stitched circle die as well as a stitched rectangle die, after which I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner. All elements are glued directly to the Cement Gray card base apart from the cowgirl who is popped up on foam tape.
Thanks for visiting! Please head over to the challenge blog and check out our new DT members as well as everyone's gorgeous cards.
