WMSC #63 Week of 9-3-11 - It's Your Big Day



This is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge No. 63.  I don't know why but "western" immediately came to mind when I saw the layout sketch by Anya Schrier.  I can't explain how the wheels start turning in there, but I immediately grabbed my Back in the Saddle set and went to work!
WMS-63
I made this great two tone bow by taking two lengths of seam binding and looping them in a figure 8 around the dowels of my peg bow set up which made the colors alternate.  I don't have anything fancy, just a length of wood with holes drilled every inch and a few short lengths of dowell rod.  I've been using Hug Snug seam binding from Fabric.com.  They sell it in rolls of 100 feet for $9 - that works out to 9 cents a yard - very affordable - even when you double it up like I did.  Sometimes you will get lucky and find a coupon if you do a search on line.  I first made this bow on my card for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger "Nice and Neutral" last week and I'm stuck on it!  And did I mention I got the Trigger Target Badge?  Sweet!
Well I hope you like this beauty - I dressed it up with lots of fab details, the felt flowers with pearl centers, two tone bow with a button star center, and a touch of foil and gems!  Can you say YEE HAW!?

This one jumps right out at you with those gorgeous colors. The two toned ribbon with the little star in the middle and the three layers of papers. This is one of my favorites of the week!
