Howdy Y'all!

I made this card for Club Anya's "I Wanna Be Like..." challenge and this week's guest was the very talented and inspirational Caz. I had fun with the sketch and used several new to me techniques. The three techniques I used were faux stitching, edge distressing, and frame sponging. I think all three really tied this card together rather nicely. Now this card is going to go to one of my Skinny Bop Girls because she reached a 10 pounds loss goal and I remember her sharing a picture with the group of when she was on a ranch and at a happy weight. So hopefully this will inspire her to make it to the next goal. I do want to thank the talented Miss Kadie for giving me this TGF Wild West Anya and the ever sweet moving up in the world Miss Karen for the edge distresser tool that I am finally using. Since I didn't have gems to use on this card I used twine to make a lasso and tried to give it a loopy feel.
