Happy B-day....Western Style

Now this card was rather a challenge for me...I don't do "western" cards very often! I don't have any western stamps even...just a few digis. So I used a few Doodle Pantry digis and a horse that I "gleaned" from the internet.

Happy Birthday Cowboy!
You would be amazed how long it took me to make this simple card! Too much rethinkiing, and rearranging! Yikes! And all because I wanted to participate in the challenge at SweetStamps this week!

So here is what I used:
Digital images from Doodle Pantry - Old Pistol set: "oval wire", "old pistol" & "bday"
horse image - internet 'freebie' (tweeked)
Card stock - K&Company "TC Blossomwood", Core'dinations "Chocolate Mousse", Imaginisce "Hallowhimsy", plus...stash
shaped border - Frances Meyer scissors
twine & brad - from my stash

Challenges:
doodlepantryblog.blogspot.com - #38 Use a DP Image

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
