Paper Smooches Anything Goes - Happy Trails

(((If you happen to be looking for my New Years Giveaway of the Unity set Snowflake Kisses, click HERE or just scroll down. It is open for a few more days!)))

Oh how I am loving my Paper Smooches these days!!! I also have been in LOVE with this particular paper pad lately - it's from Glitz Designs, and just so fun and rich and elegant! So...I decided I couldn't miss the opportunity to play along with this weeks Paper Smooches Challenge - Anything Goes:
For this set, I used the very first Paper Smooches stamp set I ever owned - Buckaroo. I happened to be lucky enough to win it - and it has been love ever since!
I stamped the horse silhouette, then paper pieced on the cowboy hat in the floral paper, adding a bit  of Copic marker for the hat band, and a tiny jewel in the center. Totally girly, right? 
I added some paper strips on the bottom, and stamped the sentiment on a hand trimmed banner, then added a Tim Holtz paper clip along the side. 
Added some jute twine with several wraps, then tied a cute bow and added an October Afternoon button to the center. 
Finished off with a couple layers of matting with pattern paper before attaching to a kraft paper card base.
Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Trails from the cold state of Wyoming!!!
