It's Your Birthday {SSSC170}

Hi there!!  It's time again for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch!  This week's sketch is a goodie!!  I hope you get a chance to play along!  If you do, don't forget to add a link to your card on Karen's blog for a chance to be the Sweet Sunday Sketch Guest!

Speaking of Guests, our Sweet Sunday Sketch Guest this week is Mindy Backes!!  Welcome Mindy!!

My card today uses two FABULOUS new sets from MFT, Howdy and Western Backgrounds, both by Lisa Johnson Designs.  My card uses no patterned paper...just Western Backgrounds!  The birthday sign was cut out using the new Die-namics Howdy Frames and was hung from the smaller Framing Flourishes Die-namics with some metal rings.  The stars were made with the Star STAX.  Peeking out from behind the main image panel is the Western Star Border Duo.  It was layered with some beautiful lace trim and some Hemp Cord.  The smaller star was finished with a Hemp Cord tied Sno Cone Button.

Wow, Jackie, this is fabulour. Love everything about it, especially the colors and the stamped backgrounds. I didn't get the western backgrounds either but did the get the western set, star border and howdy frame dies. Will definitely have to get the backgrounds on my next order. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card.

Wow Jacks! Your card is all sorts of fabulous. Love all the background stamping - looks like patterned paper! GASP! The sign hanging down from the flourish is AMAIZNG! I must hunt down those metal rings.
