Happy Birthday!

My niece will be turning 8 at the end of this week and she is a little bit of a cowgirl.  She rides horses and wears cowboy boots but in a very girly way.  I wanted to make her a card to help celebrate and I also used this card for the My Favorite Thing Wednesday Stamp Club challenge #64.

I used the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Cowgirl stamp set along with the Die-namics country charm die set.  The designer paper I used is My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally 6x6 paper pad.  It has some very cute county-ish papers.  I especially love the wood paper.  I colored this cowgirl with Copic markers after stamping her in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink.  I sewed an actual bandana on this card to give it a country touch then used twine to 'rope' it all together.

Here is a close-up of the charms I used.  I cut them out with my Cuttlebug and then covered them in  Martha Stewart glitter.  I attached them to the twine using a pin I took off some clothes I bought at Martin & Osa.  Cute! 

On the inside of the card I added some more of this cute paper and stamped a shadow of the cowgirl.  I typed the sentiment on my computer and then printed it out.

These are the My Favorite Things stamps and dies I used for this card.

Thanks for checking out my blog!
