The Old Tractor

Hello!  Today I have another Design Team card to share for Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by
                                                   
and our theme is "Texture". 

I used our sponsors image "The Old Tractor", precolored, for my card:


I used a piece of burlap for the background texture and knotted a piece of twine to look somewhat like barbed wire. I tore the edges of the image and used distress ink.  The wheat is a Cricut diecut.  It's from the "Botanicals" cartridge.

Now for my reality........

I see a little problem here!  Oh well, I just cut off the front and glued it to another card. Right side up this time!

Thanks for stopping by and, as always, I hope you'll join us at Tuesday Throwdown!

Dance To The Music of Your Dreams...

Hello!  It's Tuesday and you know what that means...a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by
                                            https://www.etsy.com/shop/KittyBeeDesign
and we have a sketch for your inspiration:

 I've used our sponsor's image "Love Bug 5" for my card for one of my Zippy Zebra buddies:
 I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and mounted it onto a Spellbinders Die.  The background paper is from the latest Cardmaking and Paper Crafts Magazine freebie.   The flower brads are some golden oldies I've had in my stash since I started scrapbooking...which was before I started cardmaking...which was before I started blogging...so they're OLD!

 Inside I've used a sentiment stamp from Stampabilities and on the left is a sticker.

I love this sentiment: "Dance to the music of your dreams; the steps will bring you joy."  I found this in my "Sentiments" folder and I know it was a magazine freebie,but I'm not sure which one.  I think it was Cardmaker Magazine.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Please go by and check out all the great inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown!
