It's a Sweet, Sweet Day... and then some!

How many of you look at this card and hear Bon Jovi's "Wanted, Dead or Alive?" Sing it with me now:

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive...

You KNOW you know all the words to that song, too!

This is my card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday's sketch 11, along with a few other sketches. This card also works for Color Throwdown Challenge #56, Crafty Creations Challenges to use tags, A Spoon Full of Sugar's "travel" theme challenge, and ABC Challenge's requirement to use buttons. PHEW~ talk about a mouth full! In case you are wondering, no, I really do not have a tone of time to go looking up challenges, but my girlie Joni hooked my up with THIS BLOG which lists weekly challenges. DUH! Talk about keeping it simple and oraganized for me.

Here are the details:
Cardstock: SU! dusty durango, soft suede, bermuda bay; Bazzill French Vanilla; Copper Metallics
Ink: SU! Basic Brown, Tangerine Tango
Stamps: Born to Ride by Prickly Pear; Defining Adventure by SIWS by Jen
Accesories/Tools: twine; dimensional tape; Making Memories large eyelet; 1/16" hole punch; Fiskars Large Star Punch (to make the "buttons")

** This is a more involved version of a card I posted on Monday for CAS**
