Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge #53

Last week the Busy Beauties Boutique had such a good time participating in the Inspirational Card Sketches challenge that we decided to do it again this week!  Dawn has provided a very interesting sketch (I love the creativity of this DT!) and, though it did take a bit to put the pieces together, I think I pulled it off!

One of my favorite Busy Beauties images is the Runway Beauty.  I've used her before and I just can't help putting a streak of aqua in her black hair!  She is colored with Copics.  The card blank is Bazzill textured card stock.  I found a scrap of mulberry paper then cut into a sheet of embossed faux leather specialty.  I've had the leather for quite awhile, waiting for just the right time to use it.  I don't know what took me so long!  This was a very fun texture for this sketch!  In keeping with the western look I strung 3 beads to a suede leather lace and added a couple of feathers.  The heart-shaped concho carries a bit of twine and also reflects the embossed pattern of the leather.  Wow, this was fun!

So, if you want to see some really great projects hop on over to ICSketches to see what the DT has in store!  More of the Beauties DT are participating, too, and I am honored to be part of that amazing team, too, so take a run through the participants projects, too.  You will find so much inspiration in just one place!

Thank you for stopping by!  Your time is so appreciated!
