Howdy Partner-Time to circle the digis

Thanks to The Kraft Journal Challenge this week, I get to play among the Cowboys!  Their challenge was to use Kraft paper with the theme of Western Flair and I think I've done that.  I used the sketch from Crafting  For All Seasons by angling a red checkered strip- under a star filled circle-which sits on top of a horizontal brown tooled leather paper-which has a weathered red barn wood paper on top of THAT-the smaller circle w/ boot image has a deep red large button with hemp cord tied through it.
Now they said that you needed to keep to the image pretty much but that you could add other embellies-I added the Howdy banner and elected to use the brad accents to hold up the sign instead of in the corner.  Because of my love of textiles, I also added a braided rough ribbon along the front. I had such fun with the easel card recently, I couldn't resist using the cowboy printed paper and buttons on this special card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  6. This card is great. I never made a card like that but someday...LOL. Your western theme is fantastic (I am a sucker for the west...maybe cuz I lived on the east coast most my life). Any ways, great job!
