Paper Players 289 Stampede


Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge and Laurie, our very own die cut maven, has an awesome challenge for us today:


Woohoo and yeehaw!  I had a blast making this card!  I have been hoarding this Cosmo Cricket Wanted DSP for a long time (I think I should write the purchase date on the back of my 6x6 pads so I know just how long I have been hoarding them, LOL!), and used it with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

 So here we go:


My image is one I won from 100 Proof Press, and I don't think it's ever seen ink!  It saw Chocolate Chip ink on this card, and it was complemented with a diecut horseshoe cut from some old Bronze cardstock and a hank of "lariat":


The whole panel was mounted on a Mint Macaron card base which was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  The inside was stamped with some sentiments from Endless Birthday Wishes and YeeHaw:


What a fun challenge!  I hope you'll play along with your Western-themed creation!  Check out what the others did right here:

 LOOOOK!!  CASSIDY CLEANED HER ROOM!  We can see the floor!


LOL....enjoy your day!
