Living in the Wild Wild West

Here is my final post of the day, and it was for the final challenge for VSN over at Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge was to be inspired by that song from the 80's called Living in the Wild Wild West.  The twist was to use gingham somewhere on the card.  I chose to use the verse '47 heartbeats beating like a drum'.  I used 2 different Paper Smooches sets to achieve this card.  I am so pleased with the results.  

I obviously took the nut from Falling For You and cut off the nut part to make the drums.  The drum sticks and squirrel came from Hang Ups.  The sketch came from Deconstructed Sketch.
 Here is a peek at the inside.
Stamps:  Falling For You, Hang Ups
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  CC Odds & Ends, CDS Cottonball White
Accessories:  Copics & airbrush, CDS mini sparkle pearls, Labels 17 Nestabilities, green gingham ribbon, dimensionals, red Spica pen

Thanks for stopping by!
