Round Up the Posse

Hey cowgirls! Round up the posse, its Waltzingmouse Sketch Saturday!

A fun sketch today, featuring a banner element!

I felt the tug of the Western sets, Back in the Saddle and Way Out West, so I brought these out for this week's sketch challenge.

I created a sentiment background and then stamped over it with the woodgrain pattern.

I used Bitty Banners for my banner base and then added the cowboy boots. I knotted each flag together with button twine and adhered it to my card with dimensional foam tape.

I hope you will play along - please don't feel intimidated if you don't have a banner stamp! I know some of the other ladies are sharing some really inspired ideas today! If you'd like to join us, you can link up your creation over on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the week's random winner and the new sketch on Saturday! Have a great day, we're headed out to celebrate our niece's first birthday!
