OWH sketch #175 card challenge

It's Sunday today, so that means a new OWH sketch. I can't believe it's up to #175 already! Here's the card sketch.

I'm currently working on My Mind's Eye - Cowboy 6x6. I like it, but the colors are so soft that I feel the need to layer my cards with black for some contrast. I usually use much bolder colors. I think this card came together nicely using the black layers.

paper - My Mind's Eye - Cowboy
border die cut - MFT Die-namics
stamp - Stampendous
brads - Recollections
Versafine ink

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  11. Excellent, and agree, the darker colors really make the card here! That is a very soft-palette in that pad. Great take on the sketch. Thanks for sharing! Tamara

  13. That is such a pretty card! Like the others, I like the little bit below the horizontal strip and how cool was that to round opposite corners to make a great new shape?! I'm putting this in my inspiration file!
