Evenin' Ma'am...

Hello, friends!!  I here with a card that I made for this month's My Favorite Things guest designer challenge.  This month the challenge was to make a project using the sketch.   I just couldn't pass up the chance to make  something with one of the many super cute Pure Innocence stamp sets that I own.   I absolutely adore the Pure Innocence line from MFT!   And having a crack at being the guest designer for the next MFT release and getting $200.00 worth of free MFT goodies was a pretty good incentive, too... hee hee!



For my card I used this cute, cute, cute little cowboy from the PI set appropriately named "Cowboy".  This little feller was part of a PI VIP set that included a little cowgirl PI set, as well as the super duper cute set of four little western themed charms, three of which you see here.   I started out by stamping the little cowboy on Rustic Cream cardstock and then I trimmed him out.  Next he was stamped on multiple pieces of patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Wanted 6x6 pad.  Once that was done I got to work trimming out all those little pieces for his outfit and then paper piecing them on to the trimmed out main image.  Once that was done I colored his face and hands with Copic markers.    The cork banners were die cut using my all time favorite set of dies (seriously I LOVE these dies!!), MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax.   The sentiment banner was also cut using the same dies.  After I got everything adhered to the card front I tied the little charms together using some burlap twine and then adhered them to the banners.

Well... yee haw and thanks for moseying on by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic Cream & Dark Chocolate; PP:  Cosmo Cricket Wanted; Stamps:  MFT Pure Innocence Cowboy; Dies:  MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax dies & Country Charms
