Sketchy Greetings! CPS 110

My FIRST attempt at a sketch challenge! OMG! I'm in the blogosphere now, baby! Here is my first, ever challenge entry! Thanks to my dear and highly creative, card making, blog savvy and wonderful friends who've directed me towards this lovely gathering-o-talented paper crafters... I'm throwing in my hat... ur, COWBOY HAT, via greeting card, into the mix! Here is my answer to the Sketch 110 from Card Positioning Systems:







I had a lot of fun letting my imagination go WILD and come up with a design based solely on the sketch and how it inspired me: you'll see by my wild, WILD list of stamps, that I really let the "horses run", so to speak, and just used images that worked to fit the mood of my composition....

Stamps: sentiment - Taylored Artwork; running horses - S/U!; vintage cowgirl - (c) Dawn Houser for INKADINKADO; mountains - PSX

Card stock - Stampin' Up!; patterned paper - Foofala

INK - Staz-On, & Stampin' Up!

Other - Tim Holtz FRAGMENTS - plastic oval; rub ons & bling - Imaginise

Acrylic paint - Liquitex

So, now I'll attempt to link myself to CPS and go visit all of the lovely, crafty folks there! Wheeehooooo!

Thanks for visiting me! I SO appreciate your support and sharing!
