WMSC#113 - Giddyup

I had a lot of fun with this one!  This week's WMSC#113, a really cute sketch by Lynn Mercurio inspired me to add a western theme to my card.  Back in the Saddle and Way Out West are the perfect stamp sets to use for a birthday card for my Dad.

First the sketch...
and now the card:

Waltzingmouse Stamps Way Out West Back In the Saddle

Lots going on...woodgrain base, burlap and a little bit of fringe along the bottom, love the horse and cowboy stamped three times to give the illusion of movement and the fun cactus background.  I also added the cute sentiment from Back In the Saddle and some Western Country Charms from My Favorite Things Stamps along with some twine.  My Dad is 83 and doesn't really "get" that I make all my cards...but I think he might figure it out with this one.  Thanks for taking a look!

Cathy, the Western themed diecuts along the top of the card really tie the whole thing together perfectly. I love that you stamped off when stamping the horse too!

What an amazing card. I love all the little details you used. And, I see a case in my future--love those tiny die cut western icons. Happy birthday to your dad. He will surely see the light about your card making with this one.
