Sketch #55 and the MWT Farm Animal Challenge

I may have found a solution to my never being able to stay caught up on the S&S Challenges, This week I decided I'd combine the sketch and the MWT into one challenge and here is the result.

The image is Kid's Coloring Page from the National Farm Toy Museum website.  That must be one fun museum! I have been fortunate enough to have visited many beautiful parts of our country and if I ever find myself anywhere near Dyersville, Iowa this place will be a must see on my list. (Please take note that while the internet is replete with supposedly "free" coloring pages you should always carefully review/consider copyright permissions and the manner in which you use the images).

The denim paper is actually a scan I did of a pair of my own jeans quite a few years back. I had a stack of color copies made and am finally at the end of my supply. The denim is so versatile, and especially nice for masculine cards,  I may have to do this again.
The other papers are bits from my scrap stash.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

I love the card! Never heard of the museum even though I have been through Dyersville. I think the Field of Dreams is there also. I am from Iowa by the way. Great idea on the scanning. Denim is very versatile!
