I think today's set, Cowgirls Rule, is my favorite of this month's release. I made another criss-cross card today, using MFP Dark Chocolate Bar and some Heidi Grace designer paper. My contrasting cardstock is Later Afternoon Sun, so I colored the roses on the boots yellow. The insert is a fairly simple birthday wish.



I love the image of the little girl and her horse! When I colored the saddle, I made it a sort-of-mahogany color to coordinate with the Basic Grey Boxer DP I used as a background for the focal image. The sentiment is attached using some brown/white bakers twine threaded through eyelets.
