Two for Tuesday (pt I)

This card came together very easily last night. While watching TV with my daughter, the crafty mojo kicked into gear. Received this paper over the weekend and love it! I am finding that I am making too many girl baby cards...hmmm..... Anyway, not sure where the paper is from- just a great stack of 8x8 matching patterns. Bunny is a felt stick on, MM tiny alpha stickers. The sketch I was inspired by came from my fave site Unscripted Sketches (though I told myself that I need to make more layouts from this site, not cards!). This is also my first attempt at crimping ribbon on my card. Needs more work to get this technique down, but love the textures on it!
Now this card, pushed me to my limits in patience! LOL!! I am still trying to work on watercolor pencils- this horse just needed soft colors. I hate the paper curling-grrrrrr....! Used hemp to add to the rustic cowboy feel of the card. This stamp set is from CTMH and has a set of horseshoes which make a great border. I stamped them onto this blue binding tape. Now, the sketch challenge came from Cupcake Craft Challenges. Not only was it to follow the sketch, but follow the COLOR scheme of the sketch (blue, brown, tans...) Thanks for stopping by!
