Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #90

Boy did this Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #90 have me stumped for a bit.  I just couldn’t figure out how to lay it out.  I decided to go clean and simple and since I love Back In The Saddle, it was what I decided to use with it. 

I flipped the sketch over and put the triangle shaped focal point on the lower left corner.  I love how the sentiments work together to make a nice train of thought.  It works well for a masculine birthday card.  I am happy with it but am glad you don’t have to see the attempts it took to get everything lined up the way I wanted it to be.  The card details are below.

Hope you are having a blissful day!  Thanks for stopping by….
