"A Little Cowboy"



Have you ever made a card that you just liked? For me this is one of  those cards. I think it is because I am so pleased with the way the chaps came out. they actually look furry to me! I think it is the flicking I have learned in my Skin and Hair class at Kit and Clowder! Also, it is because I love this image, you must admit it is mighty cute. I kept my layout CAS as I wanted the image to be the focal point. I did make a little 'pocket' with a 'hankie' peeking out. I added some star buttons and some mini buttons for interest. So, what do you think...will he lasso your heart?
I am entering this card at the following challenges:


My Song: Little Cowboy
Little cowboy, put your saddle in the barn
Tie your horse up tight, so he'll know no harm
Put your hat and your gun
Beside you on the chair
Don't forget, you've got to say a little prayer
Little cowboy, you'd better hit the sandman trail
Or you'll be late for roundup time you know
If you wanna be a cowboy, you'd better rest a while
Little cowboy baby of the old corral

The chaps are amazing!! So is the rest of the image for that fact :). I know what you mean about finishing a card and just really loving it. I felt the same way this week. I love the look you achieved with felt (?!?)) in the "Howdy" pocket.

Thanks for playing at ~Jo's Scrap Shack ~

Happy crafting,
Bridget
