Seize the Birthday {Cowboy}

Another week at Seize the Birthday! Wow, 11 weeks with this challenge already! Thank you to everyone who joins us each week and plays along!! This week we are looking for Masculine cards! 

Here is the set from Uniko
This month we are thrilled to be sponsored by the Uniko Studio. They are offering the sweet set Bright Butterflies to our winner! Thank you so much to Beverly for sponsoring our challenge for the month of March!

I was excited to ink up a new stamp set from There She Goes called Giddy Up. I inked my sweet cowboy in Memento tuxedo black ink and went to work, colouring him with my Copics. Then I paper pieces his bandanna. The same paper is also on the inside of my card and on the front like little flags. I used my woodgrain embossing folder and kept the whole design clean. The sentiment Happy Birthday is from Paper Smooches and the "Cowboy" sentiment comes from the Giddy Up set. I stamped him out of the panel and then stamped another top of his hat on a separate piece of paper. Then I cut out the second hat and paper pieced it on my main panel, so that his hat would stick out.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: There She Goes Giddy Up
Inks: Copics and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Papers: Kraft, Black, White and Snap Vibe Designer Paper from Simple Stories
Extras: Woodgrain Embossing Folder and Big Shot

We hope you can stop by and join us this week at Seize the Birthday!! I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
