Bug A Boo Stamps Cowboy


I used a cute image from the Cowboy Collection for our Stamps R Us "Just Kidding Around" challenge sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps today.  He is colored with Copic markers E41, E42, E43, E44, E00, E000, R02, R37, R24, R22, B97, B45, B21, W3, W1, W0, C6, C3, C1, C00, Y13, Y15, Y18, YG11, YG13, YG17. 

The layout and sentiment for my card were inspired by Operation Write Home, I thought using the horse shoe to spell out "miss you" would be great for a service person to send home to their child. 
Especially a little cowboy! 

I used Stampin' Up! Brocade Blue, Kraft, Neenah Solar White and Red Linen card stocks.  The red panel was stamped with the Paisley background stamp by Stampin' Up! and the Kraft panel was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I also used the Stampin' Up! Just Jeans background stamp on the Brocade Blue.  The "miss" part of the sentiment was computer generated.

Jan, you always have the cutest images! I love how you used the horseshoe for the U. Love everything about your card - the embossing, the color combo, and the slight pattern to the red paper, and of course - your coloring job! ♥
