Save a Horse...

You know how the song goes!  I saw this paper in my stash and that is immediately what started playing in my head!  lol  I knew I wanted to make a card for the Kenny K Krafty Girlz design team call (found here).  And I knew there was a sexy cowgirl that fit the bill!  Once I selected my sketch, the rest just came together easily!  I love when that happens, don't you?  I've been dying to color up Jessi Jane forever now, and this seemed like a fabulous time to make a fun card, just for the heck of it!

I chose the I {heart} sketches "sketch for you to try" for June as my layout.  You can find the details on this fantastic sketch here.  The papers, which have been in my stash for well over a year, are Debbie Mumm by Creative Inspirations.  Jessi is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  I used my computer to generate the sentiment and then used my Spellbinders Stars Five Nestabilities to cut it out.  I also used Classic Circles dies on the card as well.  A little bling here, some flowers there, and I was ready to go!

I love Kenny K's images, and I am crossing my fingers that I am considered.  I was checking out the competition earlier, and there are some talented crafters that have turned out for this call!  But I expected nothing less!  Still, you never know unless you try so I'm throwing my cowgirl hat in the ring!  :)

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Shelly's Images: Blingage
- ATCs and Cards with Attitude: #15-Anything Goes/Father's Day
- Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: #64-Swirls and Flourishes 

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments!  I love the feedback I receive on my creations!  Have a fabulous evening.  It's time to relax for us here.  We're a little tuckered out from the sun, fun in the pool, and late night crafting!  (Well, okay that last one is just me! lol)

Love the rhinestone swirls on this card, they go really well and make it feel even more 'western-ish', almost like the paisley patterns on bandanas.
