I think that’s what I probably should have done this afternoon but I did some housework, made some apple pie bars (Yumm!) and I just had to make another card. Okay, I didn’t need to but I wanted to!
It all started with this sketch from Sketch Saturday. The original sketch is for a square card, I just re-proportioned things a bit to make a rectangle shaped card. The sketch is a great one to use up some of those scrapes we can’t seem to throw away.
For color inspiration I chose this color palette from My Time Made Easy. My first inclination was to make a baby boy card or possibly a soft, feminine card. So what do I wind up doing? I make a western card! Saffron and baby blue are not the typical colors one thinks of but you know, I think it works!
The image is Siesta Time, from Di’s Digi Downloads. I used a combination of Promarkers and Copics to color the image. I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One to die cut the image.
I embossed the cardstock with two different Cuttlebug embossing folders. The sentiment is computer generated, die cut using a Spellbinder circle and layering it on a star diecut using Spellbinder’s star die. I added some twine and even made my own lariat with the same twine.
The inside sentiment reads: There’s a Time to Work, There’s a Time to Play and There’s Always Time to Play! Happy Birthday
Thanks for stopping by! Stop back again!!! Dee
