She Knows Her Own Strength

I've created a card using the fabulous Cowgirl Strength from Artistic Outpost.

My inspiration began with the flowers sent to me by my fellow DT member Suzz, I thought they were perfect for adding a feminine touch to my image.
I loved the combination of the earthy tones and the warm red which again was inspired by the flowers.  The star background paper is from one of Tim's paper pads with a little fired brick ink sponged around the edges.  I coloured my focal image with Distress Markers and matt and layered onto coordinated card.
I added the bunting to the top of my card for a little more interest along with a flower to her hat.  I love the sentiment with this set "She Knows Her Own Strength" which I think will work perfectly with so many female images.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Hi Tracy
What a great card the colours are so earthy but the red flowers just lift it a little. The flower on her hat softens her as well. The bunting was a great addition. Fantastic

The image and background are beautiful but I think the addition of the flowers, especially the one on the hat really finish it off well. Love your combination of colours and the gorgeous bunting too.

Thank you Tracy, it's been a mad couple of weeks, hence the lack of comments from me. But I can sit back and relax now and catch up on some blogging. I love your card, I especially like the way you've coloured the image and the bunting. I like the star background paper too, its very cool. Michelle xx
