To keep postage costs down, OWH asks that you keep cards to a specific size, no glitter, and layering to a minimum. All easy things to comply with! A sketch challenge is posted every Sunday, and there is a Midweek Throwdown Challenge every Wednesday to keep those creative juices flowing. Here is a link to the challenge blog Stars and Stamps. I try to make cards in themes that I feel will appeal to younger men and women. I made this one western for all those cowboys and girls out there! I kept it mostly flat, but added lots of extra embellishments like the pierced zig zag border, the Kraft doily and a bit of twine.
I hope you like it and thank you for having a look. As always if I get a good response I will make 10 more of these to send to OWH - so if you LIKE it - LEAVE A COMMENT!
