Round Up

Round Up - I have made this western themed card for this weeks challenge at Sew Many Challenges. Our challenge this week is to use twine on our projects. Well, twine just screams western to me. Do you see my little piece of twine wrapper around my sentiment?

Did you notice the spurs on my DP? It is Portobello Road by Recollections. I found this awesome pad a while back, but this is the first time that I have used it. It is all grays and browns; which is so nice for male cards. I distressed the edges with the distressing tool, then inked with Ranger's Gathered Twigs ink. The image is distressed with Fired Brick. My Sentiment is from The Paper Studio.
My image is from the Cowboy accessory pack by Sew Many Cards and colored with Copics.
My second card uses Sew Many Cards Christmas Letter image. It is a freebie! But it is available here only for a short time.
My 7 year old grandson made the DP. It is his real letter to Santa. We had been unable to get him to tell us what he wanted that was reasonable, then I thought to have him "help" me and it worked! Now I know what to get him!
This will be our last challenge of the year at Sew Many Challenges. We will return on January 6 all rested up!
