Countdown Begins!

Sorry I have been absent for a few days - Friday I was hit with a flu bug so my long weekend was spent in bed!  Still feeling dizzy and tired, but I need to color, it's an addiction, so here's my card for this weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter - #20 Anything Goes. 
There are only three more days until the Calgary Stampede starts with the parade on Friday, and this year the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are officially starting the parade, so all the Royal followers are starting to camp out already!!  So my card this week has a tiny bit of a western theme to it.  The image from The Paper Shelter is entitled "Victorian Beauty" and was colored with Copics.  Both the image and the dp mat were cut with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles.  The floral dp is from 7 Gypsies Conservatory Collection, and the card front dp is from Cosmo Cricket Wanted collection.  Sentiment and image stamped on corners are from Waltzingmouse Back In The Saddle set.  Ribbon with beads was purchased from a large hobby store, the perfect embellishment to finish off this card.


  1. Shari, This is fabulous!! I love the papers and that fun ribbon! Beautiful coloring too!

  2. Howdy Shari, great card and a lovely image, the colours are just fab! Hope you feel better very soon. You will probably get to see more of the Royals than we do lol!
