Yellow Rose of Texas Sketch

Y'all know where this is going, right?  Edna Morrisedie has done gone and drawn up a very FUN and challenging sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week!


I had to keep with my Western theme of the month and use Back and the Saddle AGAIN :)!


The bottom panels made me think of this woodgrain paper in the My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline Howdy Doody" Collection and then the card just took shape from there!  I aligned sentiments from Back in the Saddle on an acrylic block and stamped them all at once.


I had colored this rose from Roses In Bloom a few days ago and it was in my "need to use" bin.  I thought it was a perfect Yellow Rose of Texas, then sang that song in my head for the rest of the card-making process!

The Mischief Makers have made some amazing samples with this week's sketch...and now it's your turn to play along, too!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, June 29th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Oooooh! That rose is a beauty indeed! Love the coloring and the little bit of sparkle in the center! The contrast of the feminine rose on the wood grain background is really striking and works beautifully!

Yellow Rose of Texas indeed...
and a gorgeous one at that...
all blinged out in the center!
This paper is perfect for that gorgeous bloom...
and those irresistible sentiments...
perfect!
And I'm giddy with excitement for Thursday! :)

Love this great big beautiful rose Kelly, it goes so well with the western sentiments. What an unusal sketch this is this week! Got to put my thinking cap on for this one.

Beautiful rustic rose against the woodgrain Kelly!

This is so sweet, that yellow rose looks almost real. That wood is perfect with your sentiments and so clever.
