Wanted


I was a bit short on time today so I combined three challenges. For the wacky fun of the Tuesday Teapot challenges we were off to the races so I used the horse from the Wanted set and the swirl from the new Elements Of Style. Our color challenge was for Apricot (the buttons are apricot but look a bit orange-y) Sage Shadow, and Basic Gray. The designer paper is retired from back in the day of Carte Postale. Don't know the name of it but it is SU. The third challenge was Mojo Monday's sketch.

I love it when a card comes together and we have all the supplies we need to complete it dont you?? The dsp behind your horse makes him look like he is moving.
This is one great card-and 3 challenges in one that's even better
