Happy Birthday....

....Pardner! Smiley from millan.net

My sweet little buck-a-roo had a birthday over the weekend. I can't believe it. My baby is six.

I used my DS software and a handful of cartridges to create the elements:
  • The cowboy, the grass, and the top layer of the picture mat came from A Child's Year.
  • Happy Birthday is from Storybook.
  • pardner is from Stone Script.

To create the banner I used Paper Doll Dress Up and A Child's Year.  I layered the pieces and then glued them to some jute which I lassoed at one corner.
And to add some more texture I punched holes in the base of the picture mat and whipstitched it with some thin twine.

I think you can see it better in the picture below... the banner is only attached at the the ends so that it's easy to slip the picture underneath it.
Of course everything is inked to give it a rustic appeal.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy trails y'all.
