BOY (n) A noise with dirt on it.

Right now I'm working my way through Justified on Netflix,
so I had cowboys on my mind when I was making this boy's card  :-)

I used a rectangle nestie to cut a couple of 'windows' in my card panel - and foam pads to attach it over some blue card.
The cowboy is coloured with Copics, fussy cut and attached with foam pads.
(I really need to buy shares in a foam pad company!!)
Originally my cowboy is holding a lasso, but I cut that bit off and gave him a balloon instead.
Lastly, I added the die cut letters for my sentiment.

I am happy to be the first to drop you a note because I think this card is adorable. Personally I don't do digis but it sure is a great image. Might I add that you did a perfect job of fussy cutting I thought it was a die.
