Birthday Cowboy

The "Gone Country" challenge on the Craft Your Passion Blog this week was the perfect opportunity to show off the Saddle Up Cowboy (764H) from DRS Designs. I thought he'd make a fun kids birthday card. Here's what I created:

I started first by coloring the image with Copic Markers and then I sponged light brown ink around it while it was in a circle Nestability die.  I layered it as shown and next I decorated the red cardstock for my card front.  I stamped the Interlocking Star Background (819H) on the left hand side with blue ink and I used one of the greetings from the Birthday Multi Greeting (219P) for the sentiment. I adhered the image in the center of the card front using foam tape.  I added some ribbon to the far left side and a couple buttons on the upper right side.  Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2 brown cardstock base. Cute and fun, wouldn't you say?

If you're interested in playing along in the "Gone Country" challenge you only have a few more days to do so. Check out all the details HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend!

I love this clean and simple designs. The stars on the background are perfect. Important for the design but not dominant. Nice work! Thanks for joining Craft Your Passion this week!
