Howdy!

Howdy Partners!

**Well, a Yee-Haw....I'm tooting to say THIS CARD made TOP THREE at The Kraft Journal I am truly honored**

I have a little "Western Flair" for you today totally inspired by The Kraft Journal.
I started with taking pinking shears and trimming a piece of confetti cream cardstock. Using Kraft ink I took some images from a set called Happy Trails by The Angel Company onto the confetti cream cardstock. I created a pennant banner from a piece of red checked, gingham patterned paper and applied to the right of my card front.  I then wrapped the whole thing horizontally several times with some off white lace followed by some May Arts red hemp twine embellished with a flower button tied off in a bow.
I cut a pocket in Kraft cardstock using my Cricut Old West cartridge and inked the edges in white craft ink. The pocket was then filled with items such as die cut boot, rope, a gold glittered chipboard star embellished with a computer generated sentiment tag.

I am also entering this in Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes and Ribbon Carousel: Anything Goes

That's it for me today! A little Western Flair with some lace thrown in too! :-)  As always, I truly appreciate you popping by!
