Happy Tuesday!  Hope everyone is having a good day.

Today's card is a Magnolia Tilda, as a cowgirl.  Don't you just love cowgirls!  I was a big time cowboy, western TV junkie as a kid and even had a couple of pairs of cowboy boots!

I'm entering the card in the challenge at Magnolia Down Under.  The challenge this week (#63) is a sketch by their design team member Kathrin..  Lotsa layers, fun sketch to work with!

I'm also entering it at Totally Tilda Challenges  (#5), where they want you to make your own flowers on your card.

I colored the Tilda Cowgirl with Copics.  The papers I used are Creative Imaginations, Debbie Mumm artist.  The flowers were made using the Tim Holtz Sizzix die.  The center silver buttons Jolee's Boutique.  Sentiment is by My Sentiments Exactly.  Braided twine is from my stash, a gift from my stamping buddy, Cathy.

Have a great rest of the day.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later....................
