Instructions were easy....

WMSC11This week we were able to choose one of the sketches from the previous 51 and make it our own.  I chose WMSC11 because I've never made a circular card before.  I thought  this would be a fun way to try it!

I wanted to do a westen theme because I love the Back in the Saddle Set.  This is a card I would send to a girlfriend just to say hi!  Kind of a western take on the whole "hey girlfriend" thing!

I love all the little "accents" Claire has in her sets - alot of them look vintage, but to me they also have a western feel.  I chose this accent from the Vintage Labels 4 set to frame my sentiment.

A little bit of sparkle with glitter eyelets, glass beads, a silver charm and a little rhinestone were thrown in to appeal to the ladies, but I also added a little twine to keep with the western ranch theme.

I hope you like it!  I had alot of fun making it but it was a real tricksy to photograph - it kept wanting to roll away!!!!
