I pulled out an ancient set from Stampin Up, Ancient Art to play along with the SU Only challenge, Cute Critters and the Retro Rubber Challenge. I'm sure this set is at least 15 years old! We are at our vacation home (in Arizona) and I had no other stamp sets with "critters". I hope these images count! Then when I saw the challenge for Paper Players was a Western theme I thought I had hit the jackpot. I did a very simple one layer card with minimal embellishments since I really am limited in my supplies. But I thought doing a collage type of background with the various animal symbols would be a nice effect. Then I have the photopolymer sets, Mapi it Out and Greeting From so I could make it an officially "western" card. And with one layer it is easy to mail!

What a great custom patterned paper you've created and I love your soft, muted colour palette. All with minimal supplies too! Thanks for joining our western challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

Great collage effect! These symbols also remind me of the Pacific Northwest art work I viewed when traveling there... Thanks for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun this week. Looking forward to seeing you in our gallery often!

Ah, this throws me back to one of my favorite (or is it only?) vacations where we all traveled throughout the west with my family and family dog! Love the stamped collage background for your card. Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon.

Wow! I haven't seen that set in a long time...it was in the book when I first started! Love the background with all the images! So fun and definitely fits the "cute critters" theme! Thanks for playing along with SUO Challenges this time!
