WMS June SOAP-Day 2

    Howdy!! Today is the second day of Waltzingmouse Stamps June Stamp of Approval Parade. I call today’s post “Rhinestone Cowgirl,” woohooo! I was going for a bandana/Western theme. I got a bit carried away on the card’s bandana background. I was intending to go for a more CAS background, but I got carried away (with all the bits and pieces in WMS sets it’s way too easy to get carried away). I will have to give CAS another shot! ;)

  8. My goodness - what an awesome intricate background! Love it. And the rich red colour of the paper really adds to the depth - sort of like a Persian rug with all the patterns. Wow!
