Cowboy Up--PP289

April 3, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a fun new challenge at The Paper Players!

The Lovely Laurie is our hostess this week!  I just love her Western theme challenge!  I can't wait to see all of your creative ideas for this challenge!

Oh my goodness, I had soooo much fun creating this card!  I have a million and one stamps and not one western themed stamp!!!!  Can you believe that?  I love cowboys, cowgirls and boots, so not quite sure why I don't own any.  So, I went searching for a digital stamp that would work.  Digital Delights-Lil Billy made me smile, so he was perfect for my card!  I colored him with Copic Markers and added some Wink of Stella to add some shine!  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms-Cowboy Up!    I had this background paper in my stash from my scrapbooking days.  I have no idea where it is from.  Sorry!  The burlap and brad stars were added for fun!  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
