Bombshell Monthly Sketch Challenge - December 2010

Hey Y'all...Ms. September here!!  It's been TOO long since I've posted using one of the always gorgeous Bombshell gals!!  Oh how I've missed them!!!
 Today I'm using a new digi set "Western Gal".  And Kathi has come up with yet another BRILLIANT sketch for us gals to follow!!!  I first colored this gorgeous lady with my Copic and Prismacolor markers.  I trimmed her out and set her aside. 

I started with SU!s Mellow Moss as my card base.  I used my Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to grunge up the edges which I set aside to dry.

My next layer is gorgeous DP from My Mind's Eye - Alphabet Soup line.  On top of that I used a teal cardstock from Bazzil upon which I stamped sheriff stars (SU!) in Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink. 

Sitting on top of those 2 layers I placed my chocolate brown scallop edging and atop that a strip of wool that I purchased in a ball at my local antique store.  I lightly adhered those together and took them to my sewing machine.  I used the widest zig zag stitch and went around the 3 edges of the paper and the bottom edge of the wool. 
 I then added a strip of light tan cardstock that I coated in the same tea dye ink and added a sticker for my sentiment that says 'sugar-n-spice'.  That's what this sassy gal is!!

I took my white gel pen and added a few accents here and there to make her pop.  I added her to my card using 3-D foam adhesive.

I love this sketch and am so happy with the way my card turned out!!

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!  Please come play along with us at the Bombshell Forum!!

Crafty Hugs!
