Howdy Cowboy

Soooo, this is a card I made a bit ago, but haven't had chance to share until now.

I made this card using a LOTV mini masterpiece.  I love this image, so I have added it to my wish list to be bought in due course, when I have some pennies to go on a proper spending spree in the shop.

I tried to keep the card pretty simple, so layered the image into some kraft card, and then used just one paper, which is from the LOTV cakes and candles pad.

I decorated the card by added some blue baker's twine to the top.

I also die-cut some feathers using my new Joy! feather dies.  I used a scrap of paper from the same paper pad.  

I then stamped a happy birthday sentiment onto craft card, using chipped sapphire distress ink (I love this colour), then cut this out to the shape of the sentiment,

To finish, I added two tiny blue gems to the corners of the image not already covered and three larger gems to the bottom right-hand corner of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
