BugABoo Howdy Pardners!

I was working on this card for my BugABoo Stamps design team commitment and realized I was supposed to follow a sketch...oops!  So I made another but in the meantime, I can share this one with you.  Using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I combined Wee Ones Cowboy in Training with Cowboy Chaps.  Aren't these little guys just the cutest?


The paper is some I have had around for a long time.  I wanted very muted tones for this card, much more manly!  Copics used:
Cowboys - E000, E00
Hats - E51, R93
Bandanas - B93, YR24
Vest and Jacket - YR20
Patches and Gloves - E55
Shirts - G40
Jeans - B91
Chaps - E70
Shoes - C3, C5
Saddle - E33, B93
Log - E42, E43, E44
Grass - G24
Shadow - W1
I computer generated the saying.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
