Happy Birthday Cowboy!

I wanted to share this card with everyone because this little guy is so adorable! I'm just having so much fun with my new stamps!

There is a lady at my hubby's work who I made some cards for. Her daughter recently had a baby and she asked that I make the announcements ~ I couldn't resist. I really don't have a chance to make baby cards anymore. So she told my hubby that she has a booth at the Peddler's mall here in town. It's kinda like an indoor flea market, but this one is pretty much full of antiques more than garage sale items. She said that I could make some cards and put them in her booth if I wanted to. Well, heck ya!!! So, I've been on a card making kick! And what perfect timing ~ when I've got new stamps to work with!!!

This set is called Wild West and that little guy is just so darned cute! I stamped him and colored him in with pencils. The base card is Ballet Blue and I layered on it a piece of Brilliant Blue and a piece of DP from the Paper Patch that I sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the stars, colored them in with my Summer Sun markers and then glittered them with yellow glitter. I cut each one out and glued them to the face of the card. I then layered the cowboy image on to a piece of Real Red cs. Before I layered that on to the card I stamped out the words 'Happy Birthday' in Brilliant Blue ink from the Everyday Events set on to a piece of Soft Sky that I used my Round Tab punch on and attached that to the back of the image panel. Once that was layered on to the card I stamped 'cowboy' under the image panel in Brilliant Blue ink and I was finished.

It was actually a quick card, even with cutting out all the little stars. I hope that you like it, and stop by tomorrow ~ I've got more to show you!!! Hope you have a great spring day, I will!!!
