Hambo Hoedown "A Special Kind of Challenge"

A challenge at Hambo Hoedown “A Special Kind Of Challenge”, and this time it is for OWH (Operation Write Home).   I stuck to their rules of NO GLITTER and it was really hard.  I wanted to spruce it up but I restrained myself.    Then when I was finished with the card I noticed I used a 5 x 7 card (My normal size) OWH requires a 4.25 x 5.5 card.  WOOPS!  Don’t know how I missed it.  It is all about the details so if you join the challenge make sure you read carefully (not like me).   That’s okay; there will be other challenges and other opportunities to send cards to OWH.  You can find the Hambo Hoedown challenge here: . 

Supplies Used:
Hambo – Cool Cat and Pig Sub
Circle Nestabilities
Some nylon rope out of my husband’s stash (SHHHH don’t tell him)
Dimensional tape
Fancy Tag by EK Success
Colored pencils and markers
Paper from sei the Black Orchid collection
6 grommets from my stash (used my Crop-A-Dile2)
And some black and white card stock

I am editing this blog to include my card to be sent to OWH.  I felt really bad about not having the dimensions right so I made a mini card.  Well mini to me.   Good thing I just got new glasses since some of the coloring is small.  I will send this off to Monica tomorrow morning.  Thanks for letting me play.
