Sweet Stamps- Go West.......! Western theme.....

It's another fun challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is a WESTERN one.



 I used a newly released image from Sweet Stamps- I just love this gorgeous horse- it is stamped in Brownie Shades ink spot, and I colored it in with Copics. I decided to make 1/2 rosettes for the top of the card using 3/4" strips of the Wellington DP and Coordinations cardstock. I used a lighter brown Coordinations cardstock for the banner dies, and embossed them with the wood grain embossing plate, then highlighted the raised embossing with Brownie ink.

Here are the Sweet Stamps supplies I used:




 I hope you will join in the challenge! Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by Random.org- so everyone has a chance to win!
