Today's CCEE challenge was to create a card using a silhouette as the main focal image. I ordered this stamp about a year ago and I have never used it. Thanks, Jo, for giving me the nudge I needed to make a card with it. My youngest grandson has done rodeo since he was very young and he is very small for his age. The cowboy on the right reminds me of him and the way he does the brim of his cowboy hat. Tomorrow is his birthday so this card is for him.
We would love to have you join us in the CCEE challenge, you can look at the other gal's cards and find the details to the challenge HERE
