Meljen's Challenge #22

Hey everyone, its Thursday and that means that it is time for my GDT post for the Meljen's Designs DT blog, along with a rootin' tootin' new release.

Melissa has "roped" up some awesome new western images for you this time. They are all available now in the Whimsy shop! Oh and don't forget the sale, all stamps are on sale for 25% off until the end of August!

Wow aren't those great? I don't know which is my fave, I love them all so much. Don't forget to grab the fun horseshoe freebie from Monday too.
Now for this week's challenge. In honor of Miss Dee's (DT member and dear friend of mine) birthday TODAY, we are having a HAPPY BIRTHDAY challenge. So let's see those birthday cards. Remember, if you play along you have the chance to win 3 Free digis of your choice. How great is that?
For my card this week I used "Lil' Rodeo Boy". Oh my he was so fun to color and create with. First I went through my scrap and swap paper pile and found these awesome papers that I got from my friend Carisa. They were the perfect style for the little cowboy. I wanted to keep the card simple since I was using so much pattern in the papers so for the embellies I added a bronze brad and two bronze eyelets. To me they work perfect. Then I added the sentiment which is using the Burnstown Dam font. I love that its really wood boards connected to make the letters.

I hope you all enjoyed what I have had to share with you today and please everyone go drop by the Meljen's Designs DT blog to see the amazing cards by the other DT members and to give Dee some birthday love.

I'll be back with you later for more crafty goodness
