The Paper Players Western Theme Challenge

Howdy everyone!

My turn to host the challenge at The Paper Players this week and I chose:


It seems we are often "headed west" to Cheyenne to visit our daughter. While there,we love to shop, and I always see such fun western decor, and the cutest boots and clothes. It's fun for a everything is UP NORTH merchandise...which I love to shop for too..LOL!

I combined several dies to make my western themed card.
 I started out with my new Taylored Expressions mini block cutting plate. Then I cut out my boots, horse shoe and cowboy hat with Cheery Lynn Arizona Cowboy dies.

I added a few jewels to make my western boots and hat extra cowgirl FANCY!

I hope you will join us this week!

This card sure brings back some great memories of when I was a teen. I was such a cow girl with my boots, my belt with my name on the back and my pickup truck! Love the colors and the layout too! Super job! Thank you for linking up with us this time over at Seize the Birthday!
