Western Rose

Happy Saturday!

The April Sketch Challenge is up on the Bombshell Stamps Blog today. Here's the sketch which was designed by Kathi:
This sketch really shows off the stamped image.  I have been itching to make a 3D project so instead of making a card I decided to make a rectangular gift box. 
The stamped image of Rose is from Bombshell Stamps "Rose's Portrait Stamp Set".  She was stamped in Tsukineko Memento ink in Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored in with colored pencils and fussy cut out.  The rectangle box is the "Mini Shirt Box" from SVG Cuts Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit which I re-sized smaller at 7 inches wide in SCAL3 and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. 
Rose's Western Boots - Back of the Gift Box
One of my favorite details is the back of the box, which shows a pair of cowboy boots! I love cowboy boots, even though I live in NJ and we don't wear cowboy boots (at least no one does in any cities surrounding where I live). The paper and embellishments I used are from Webster's Pages "Western Romance" Collection Kit.  I love this collection kit, the papers are gorgeous and the colors are soft and romantic. 
So there is my take on the April Sketch.  Now, it's your turn!  Create a card based on the sketch using your Bombshell Stamps and link it up to the inlinkz at the bottom of this Bombshell Stamps Blog Post for your chance to win a Bombshell Stamp Set. Also check out the post to see what the rest of the DT created! If you love creating 3D projects like I do, go for it!  You can link up any project you love to create (3D paper crafts, altered art, notebook cover, etc) all you have to do is use the April Sketch and use your Bombshell Stamps.  We love seeing what you make!
Have a crafty and wonderful weekend!
