RRCB137 Hooray

Happy Tuesday, peeps! It's time for a new Retro Rubber challenge, and this week we are pairing with the Double Trouble challenge as well!
Our challenge is a sketch challenge so all you have to do for Retro Rubber is to make a card using our sketch and at least one stamp older than a year.
The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:
  • Thing 1 – Trouble Maker: 3-2-1 Recipe: 3 colors – 2 embellishments – 1 old stamp
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister: Follow our RRCB sketch with at least one angular shape.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare (Optional): If you used the RRCB sketch and the 3-2-1 Recipe be sure to link your card Double Trouble’s challenge to receive an additional chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

So here is our sketch:

And here's my card:

You can't really see it, but the base is Seaside Spray; my main images are from a 2010 stamp set called Out West, and the sentiment and barbed wire are from a 2015 set called Yee Haw.  I used some papers from Authentique and Carta Bella; my 3-2-1 recipe is three colors:  mustard, blue and red; 

my two embellishments are the hat and the star brad, and my one is the old stamp! 


On the inside, I stamped the boot from Out West, and cheated a little because I used a new sentiment stamp from A Grand Kid because I liked the font:

I hope you'll play along with us at Retro Rubber this week, and do the Double Trouble challenge if you want too!  Remember, you must give us the approximate age of the stamps you're using and they have to be at least a year old!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Hello LeAnne: Oh Boy! you really NAILED both challenges!
Love, love this card, all the elements perfectly dance together on this panel, I don't remember this set but, by the look of the images, it's a keeper.
The cowboy hat is just priceless.
PS, I'm so jealous of Cassidy, how I wish I could take a plunge into that pool!!!!!!!
