Go west young man!

Hey Buckaroos! This week at the ranch Mary decided it was time to Buck up and have a hoedown at Paper Cutz Challenge. we are to make a cowboy or western card. I used The Angel Company's "howdy partner" set. He is just adorable.
I couldn't decide which one I liked more so I posted both and I think I like the red around the stars better. making the background paper was fun. I crunched up the cardstock- again and again. then I sprayed it with walnut ink, brushed a brown ink pad over the top. tied on the ropey jutey thingy. Colored the little guy with markers and color pencils/ oms added the star brads and the card is done.
