It's a Wild, Wild West Duel!!

Today is the 15th and time for another Classy Card Ladies Duel.  Suzy (hostess for the Diamonds) and Debby Hostess for the Pearls) grew up in New Mexico and Texas.  They decided on a Wild West theme for this challenge and it was LOADS OF FUN, PARDNER!  

Debby's kit had so many great elements that I decided to do a stair step card to give me enough real estate to use them!  Here's my creation:

Kit Contents:

Images:  Cowboy is from Suzy Stamps and Armadillos are from Deadbeat Designs
Sentiments: Yippee & Yahoo are from Suzy Stamps and Howdy is from Deadbeat Designs.
Ink:  Mementos Rich Cocoa on white Recollections card stock.
Designer Papers:  Paper Crafts Love Nest, Paper Studios Copper Metallic and Authentique Aged Leather, Recollections Cream and Cocoa.
Embellishments:  Paper Craft tags, Crafters Square sequins, Recollections burlap ribbon and other ribbon and twine from Debby's stash.

Images were colored using Spectrum Noir markers.  I'll fess up: I used Google to know what colors to use on an Armadillo 😉

Time to "SADDLE UP" and get on over to the blogs and galleries of the other Pearls and then "MOSEY" over to the Diamonds and take a gander at their creations!

Thanks, gals, for a great theme this go-round!  Yee-haw!

Darlene, you've transported us back to the Wild, Wild West with your fun card, complete with so much from the kit Debby provided. Love love LOVE your card! BTW, I do see one wee bit of "alikeness" with our cards - the flags/sequins). Great minds think alike. ;)

Love how you used so many elements and how you laid it out. GREAT JOB!!! (sorry I'm late I tried earlier but I must have just missed you,)
