Hello Marylou

I made this card for a blogger friend of mine, thought I would use the cowboy theme as she is from Northern Ireland and don't think they have cowboys there, in fact I know they don't as I did not see any when I was there. I used Beate's sketch. This was a fun card, I did faux stitching, this was the first time I had tried it, don't know why I waited so long it was so simple and easy and I think looks great. The stamps are $ stamps that I purchased at Michaels, and the paper, well sorry I don't know.
