She Knows Her Own Strength

Greetings!  It's time once again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational!  This week, we are doing a CASE challenge based on the beautiful sample below.  
I thought about reaching for one of my dressmaker images, but in the end, decided to go in a different direction and decided to work with images from the Cowgirl Strength plate by Artistic Outpost.  The spotted cow print was stamped repeatedly along the left side of the card in Timber Brown StazOn ink.  The focal image was grounded with faux stitches along the bottom.  The sentiment was punched with a circle punch and added with foam dots.  I truly resisted covering the card with much more, as I really wanted to do, but in the end decided to tuck a snippet of ribbon behind the sentiment and add a star brad for a tiny touch of sparkle.  I hope you will drop by Inkspirational Challenge to see all the Design Team challenges and then share one of your own with us for a possible chance at a great month end prize.  Please see Inkspirational for complete details.  I'll also be sharing this card over at the Artistic Outpost Referral Program.  Thanks for dropping by.  Yvonne

Oh I'm so glad you resisted adding more! This is fantastic just the way it is. I love that little bit of ribbon behind the sentiment!

Love the strong, clean lines of this, perfect for the strength of the cowgirl! Great to have you play along again at AO!

Hi Yvonne
You've kept so close to the layout of the original card and I love the twist you've given in. Great sentiment; love the colours and pattern.
