Paper Princess February Challenge!!!

   Hello!  Is it raining on you today?!  It has been rainy and yucky here all morning long!  The sun keeps trying to peek through but the angry clouds are winning so far!  I am not complaining though!  I secretly love rainy days! :)

   I have a card to share with you today!  I belong to a wonderful group of blogging girlies and we are having another round of competing card kit challenges!  We have split into two groups and each month the hostess (Hiya Terria!!) sends everyone an identical card kit.  We all have to use up all of the goodies in the kit and make a card!  I absolutely LOVED the kit Terria sent!  I had a great time making my card.  Here is a sneak peak of the kit:


And here is my finished card:

I tore the two papers that Terria sent on the edge, distressed them and sponged them with Chocolate Chip to try to make them look dirty and worn.  I layered them on Crumb Cake ( that I also sponged the edges of).  I cut out the stamped images that she sent, added a little bling to the spurs and pop dotted them on.  I crimped a strip of left over blue, added the brads and the string to the edges and called it done! Yeeeeee-haaaaaw!  I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for cowboys so this was a really fun little project!   Would you like  to see the awesome cards made by the rest of me team?!  Take a peek:

Thank you Terria for a great card kit and challenge!  I will be back soonest with more to share!  I hope that your day is wonderful! :)
