Weekly Waltzing Mouse Challenge!

This week's Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge was such a simple one, yet left so many options... sometimes it's just easier to have fewer decisions to make!  LOL!
I love the whole western look of the Vintage Labels #18, this particular one reminding me always of a cowboy's belt buckle.
I have used it several times and always loved the outcome!
And the fact that it is made to work with the Spellbinder's Labels #18 is fantastic!
Easy Peasy!



Here's a close-up of the heat-embossed "buckle".
I chose to make it girly so that I could send it to any one of my gal friends
out here in Arizona who knows well the term,
"Cowgirl Up!"

Also, entered into TEXTURE challenge at "Do You Stack Up?"
and the weekly challenge at Kraft Journal!
