Happy Birthday, Partner!

It's Saturday and that means a brand new challenge over at Catch The Bug! Are you ready to saddle up and play along with us, pardner? I hope so, because we have a fun theme for you this week.  Our theme is Western Round Up! Doesn't it sound like a fun time?! We've rustled up some great prizes to give away too, so round up those craft supplies and lasso up a new project to link up with us! You could get lucky and walk away a winner! Check out all the challenge details, now, at Catch The Bug!

I have lots of Birthdays coming up among friends and family, so I thought I'd do a birthday card for today's challenge.  (Besides, I thought you might like a break from seeing Christmas cards!) My card uses the image Bugaboo Cowboy - Fence, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. My stash just happened to have scraps of these fun denim plain and bandanna print papers, as well as these scraps of red and white gingham - So they were perfect for a western themed card! I've used for metal brads to attach the gingham print panels and embellished one corner of the image with a blue and white gingham bow.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
