Wild West CCC64

Hi everyone, and Happy Election day. Don't forget to go out and vote today, even though it isn't a presidential year, it is still important to vote in your local elections. My 6 year old requested we wait for her to go to the polls today. She likes to tag along and vote with us. So we are planning on going after we pick up the two older girls from school this afternoon.
Today I have a card I created for the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge...and I do love my sketch challenges! Stop on over to the Cupcake blog and check out the sketch HERE. Here is what I came up with for this sketch.
I just love this little cowboy. He is sooooo cute! He is an Angel Company set called wild west. There is also 3 other sets from TAC that have very similar characters. There is a ballerina, little flower girl, and an ice cream girl. They are just adorable!!!! I stamped the little cowboy and colored him in with markers. I cut him out and layered him with dimensionals onto the background I created using the cactus stamp from the same stamp set and sponging the background.
I wanted it to look like a desert. The sentiment is also from that stamp set. The ribbon I found at a LCS...I had to buy it when I saw it. I thought it would go perfect with this set. I did make the mistake of purchasing the thicker ribbon, so I had to cut it in 1/2 for this card. The little horseshoe I stamped and embossed in silver. I attached it with a silver eyelet.
Well that is all for now. I am in the middle of another card, but haven't had a chance to get down to the stamp room yet today. So hopefully will post it for you either later, or tomorrow AM. Thanks for stopping by!
