Howdy with Paper Smooches

Good Saturday morning! I'm sharing another Paper Smooches card that I made recently - I actually used the first set I ever owned...but still hadn't had a chance to use! It is called Buckaroo and has TONS of adorable images! Here is what I made with it:
I stamped the cowboy boot, and the sentiment, and colored them with Copic Markers. Added the border along the bottom with colored ink from Papertrey Ink, the little face included in the set, and a couple of self adhesive tiny pearls for the cheeks.
And that is where the accidental change happened. I decided after that to run it through my Cuttlebug and cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Die...only it kind of flattened the pearls! Once I got over the surprise, I realized it was actually kind of a fun effect! So I left it that way! Here you can see the shading and coloring a little better - and those smooshed pearls! 
I cut a circle - also with my Spellbinders Dies - out of self adhesive cork, and mounted the cowboy boot panel on there with brads.
Finished off with some October Afternoon papers from the Sasparilla collection that I used my Tim Holtz distress tool on the edges, and then added some distress ink as well.  
I am linking this up with the Moxie Fab World Canvas, Cork, and Burlap Challenge, and throwing it in the hat for the Paper Smooches December Guest Designer Call (I haven't had that long to play with Paper Smooches yet - but have been having so much fun! So why not at least try, right?)

Thanks for stopping by to visit today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, as we head into Thanksgiving in only a few day! Yikes how the year has flown!
