"Happy Birthday Logan"


I just fell in love with this little 'Cowboy'! I think he is so cute and makes the perfect birthday card for my grandson. (Actually for any little boy!) I made the card up in two different ways just because I was having so much fun playing with this image. Both of my dp is from DC with a view. The image is a digi from http://www.thepapershelter.com/  they have some of the cutest images there. I colored the image with Copics. The first card I used a MS boarder punch  and added some ric-rac (thanks Amanda!) I also added metal corners a little twine and a Whimsy ticket sentiment. The second card I used a MS boarder punch (kind of reminded me of prickly pear cacti LOL) I embossed it with a Sizzix paisley embossing folder. I then added a brown scrap piece and two metal ribbon holders (the ribbon is also from Amanda). I finished off this card with some self-adhesive cording and a Whimsy ticket sentiment.
I am entering these cards at the following challenges:

These are adorable! Those embellishments with the rope and the metal with the ribbon are pure genius! I don't know which one I would choose to give him since they are both so cute. Superb job!
