Cowboy Birdie


Hi everyone! Is this cowboy birdie just the cutest thing or what!?! It was really fun and right up my alley creating a western card since stitching fits right in with this theme. The image and sentiment used on today's card are both from the Cowboy Birdie digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.


I paired the image with Cowboy Stripes patterned paper from Sandylion. For the card base and to matte the image I used blue cardstock I found in my stash. The shadow layer is Cranberry Crisp. The image was printed on white cardstock and colored in using copic markers. To embellish the card I added zig zag stitching, Jute Twine, star brads, and layered stars punched from matching cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
