BUGABOO STAMPS - A NEW CHALLENGE

Today's new challenge at the Catch the Bug blog is a theme challenge, and it is ...

WESTERN ROUND UP

Here is my DT sample card to inspire you to join us :


The Bugaboo image featured on my card is called Dottie 2 step, coloured with Graph'It alcohol markers and a white gel pen



To create my card I used :

white CS card base
red and blue CS mats
blue denim plaid DP


The right hand side of my card is filled with embellishments:

a raised panel made by wrapping DP around a length of  foam tape and inking the edges
fancy metal buckle (one of those hoarded thingies that you keep for years cos you know that you'll find a use for it 'someday')
red ribbon attached to the buckle and 'studded' down with silver metal beads
satin ribbon bow
button, tied with twine
kraft mini tag with peel off sentiment
white fabric lace
large red flower

flat back pearls

Click HERE to find out more details about the challenge, the prizes that can be won, AND my  awesomely talented DTeamies take on the theme.

THE CRAZY CHALLENGE, #157, B IS FOR ... BLUE, BUCKLE, BOW, BUTTON, BORDER
