Back in the saddle

     Starting you off this week with a yeehaw!  I pulled out the cute "Giddy Up" stamp set from There She Goes Clear Stamps for my card today.  Our new challenge at TSG calls for you to decorate the inside of your card.  So here's what I came up with.

     I used the solid horse shoe stamp to create a border and the stick horse stamp to carry out the sentiment thought.  Here's a close up of my little cowgirl.

Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
hair--E51, E33, E35, E57
hat--E71, E74, E79, C2, N5, N7
clothes--R20, R22, R24, R29, C00, C0, C2, E43, E47, E79, B0000, B91, B93, B97, B99, W1, W3
boots--E33, E35, E39, E51
horse--E07, E08, E09, E19, E95, E97, E21, C2, N3, N5, E23, E25, E29, E79

     Hope you'll gallop on over and play along with the challenge.
     Be blessed!

Now this is just tooo adorable, both inside and out! Love your designs to pieces. You always find the most perfect accents to go with your images. All the kraft and woodgrain and hemp are absolutely perfect and I adore all your layers. Even the bits of embossing and paper piercing on the die cut mat are amazing. So many tiny little fabulous details!

Is it weird that I love how you colored the creases in her boots? I think it's sensational how realistic they look. The folds are perfect and no doubt you get a standing YEEHAW ovation for this here cutie!!!

I am really bad at decorating the inside of my cards, bad as in "I don't do it at all". This is so cute and so simple though, I might just have to give it a try!

You do cowboy/cowgirl so well! Love your paper choices and the wonderful stitching detail. The horseshoe border is so fun and works beautifully with the gorgeous stamped images. The tiny pierced detail on the checked paper makes me do awesome details :)
