FCCB Challenge #198 - Sketch Challenge

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge over at FCCB!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least one Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

My Project:

So my MIL asked me the other day to start working on some more birthday cards for her to give out to family throughout the year...I LOVE doing this for her, so of course I got started right away!  I was super excited to be able to use a paper pack I got for Christmas from Santa too - Carta Bella's Giddy Up! pack is so fun!  I have a niece that is totally into riding horses and so I made this card with her in mind for my MIL to give to her for her birthday in May.  That was long-winded :)

Anyway, I used Summer Celebrations for the lasso/rope (3") and just cut off the Yee Ha! that comes with it. I did cut the shift phrase at 2" for the YeeHa! in the bottom corner.  I also used "Just Because" Cards for the boot and cut it out on flip at 2 1/2".  The three rhinestones are from Michael's and were the perfect addition for this cowgirl card.  The inside of the card was pretty simple, just a white cardstock mat with the sentiment stamped in the top corner - the sentiment comes from a Fiskar's set.  I used a piece of the pattern paper from the front to dress up the bottom and cut the saddle from the Toy Story cartridge at 2".

I hope my MIL will use this card for my niece because I think it turned out super cute!!!

And I hope you will join us in the fun sketch challenge going on over at FCCB this week!!!
