Sketch Saturday #33

Howdy folks!! Hope you're all keeping warm wherever you are... it's freezing here! This is my card for this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge which is another one of Jo's fabulous sketches. This week has been sponsored by Pink Gem Designs. If you love 'cute' images as much as I do then hop on over to her site and meet the family! If you are quick you can enter for the fabulous candy that's up for grabs at PGD... the draw is tomorrow!
My card is quite simple. I had my big brother in mind when I made it as it's his birthday later on in the month, so no glitter or frills on this one. The papers are American Traditional Designs, The background image is from Alota Stamps. For the sentiment I used my Xyron Design Runner and the stars are brads. I embossed the bottom Green panel with fiskars texture plate 'fabric'. Cowboy Dan is one of my own designs that I drew for the Kadoodle range sold exclusively at The Craft Barn. I'm still playing with my Koi watercolours and that's what I used to add colour to the stamped images.
Please take a look at all the wonderful creations made by my fellow DT. It always amazes me how varied and unique the cards are when we follow the same sketch.
Ta ta for now!
