JUGS 46 Wild Wild West

DSCF8826

Today’s JUGS 46 challenge is to make a project using the Wild Wild West as our theme!!  The purpose of this is to raise money for Ethan’s Rodeo; you can read all about it here.  The digi image and sentiment I am using for my card today are from last year’s fund-raiser, and I am thrilled to be able to use “Lily” and her little pony again!

My Copic-using skills are not quite what some of my stamping cohorts’ are, but I gave it my best shot with the limited supplies I had.  The card base is Pear Pizzazz; I used a mix of papers from Material Girl by CC and On the Boardwalk by Graphics 45; the ribbons also qualify this for Sharon Johnson’s Stamp Simply challenge 152, to use ribbon scraps!  These little pieces were in my ribbon bag…I only wish I could learn to sew straight.  (Actually, I think there is something off in my machine!! LOL!)  Anyway, this card is perfect for an encouragement card I need for a friend who recently took on a major ministry position in our church, and has been really discouraged.  She has horses, so although I am not sure she’s into rodeo, I think she’ll like this nonetheless!

This is perfect Leanne, I am sure your friend will love it! I love the colours, colouring and stitching. I also love the way you used the gingham on the diagonal instead of straight on, it really adds to the card's wow factor!
