Sweet Lil Cowgirl

It was love at first sight when I saw this adorable cowgirl at Digital Delights.

I did some paper piecing, cutting out most of the image so the arms and legs are behind the clothes.  This beautiful wood grain paper is by Doodle Pantry.  Sentiment is by Paula.  The buttons are die cut from card stock which I embossed before cutting out.  The twine is my favorite natural hemp twine from Kraft Outlet.

The sketch is at What if Wednesday:
 Here is a second card with just a few more "buttons" and different designer paper (scrap piece) which I streaked with More Mustard ink.
