Have A Rootin' Tootin' Christmas

Are you ready for some cuties?! It's New Release day at Bugaboo Stamps and we're having a Rootin' Tootin' Good time playing with this here cute cowgirl! Don't you just love her?!  The DT has been kickin up thier heels havin' fun with this image!  Check out all the creative cowgirl inspiration at Catch The Bug!

My card is a non-tradtional Christmas card, in non-traditional colors, using AKV Cowgirl, from Bugaboo Stamps, one of today's new releases.  She is colored with Promarkers. My card layout uses the sketch at Willow Sketchie. I went with denim and gingham papers, with an addition of polka dots. I used die cut stars and metal star brads, for embellishing.  The sentiment is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. To add that extra touch, I used a white opaque pen from Inksentials to add faux stitching to the card, and a rolled up piece of baker's twine, to make a lasso for the cowgirl's hand.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
