And now back to my card for this Challenge.
"Little Cowboy" for my image and your will find him here, Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, afterwards I cut him out with Nestabilitie Label Die No.1 and the larger one for the mount out of dark blue card. The sentiment is one I generated on my computer and printed it out and then used the star die to cut this out, and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and for my papers I have used "Little Cowboy" digi set and you will find them here, the first paper is a beige background with swirls on and for the second is a star paper which I have cut shorter than the mount and then used a star border punch down the one edge and layered it up on top of the first paper.
The image was then positioned towards the top left and with sentiment below on the right, to finish of I have used a couple more stars in corresponding colours and the final flourish is the cowboy hat charm thats been stuck to the top star.
Now that youve seen my card please do go and visit what the rest of my very talented "A" Team have or you over on The Paper Shelter Blogspot, and perhaps it will inspire you to take part in this weeks "For the Boys" Challenge.
