Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #39

Happy Saturday! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

The newly released Back in the Saddle set is so cool! I stamped the Yee Haw and the cowboy image on the woodgrain patterned paper using vintage photo distress ink. 

I trimmed a piece of white cardstock, inked it with antique linen and tea dye before I stamped the cowboy boots using tea dye distress ink. The sentiment from the same stamp set is then stamped with walnut stain distress ink.

After punching little holes around the edge, I stringed some Desert Sand button twine around it for a rustic-ish look. Metal brads are then used to finish the panel. The Pennants die is also from WOJ and the patterned paper is from the Wanted collection by Cosmo Cricket.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)
