Delightful Challenge

** Please scroll down the MTME Pretty Patterns Post **

Hi!  Thanks for coming back.  It's Release day at Delightful Digis by Louby Loo.  And this time we're headed West.

I have to tell you, when Wendy assigned me this digi image, I thought "uh-oh!  What am I going to do with her?!"  But I LOVE how my card turned out.  Introducing Lil Dixie....

I found the cutest cowboy boot at SVG cuts.  But then I remembered that not only am I featuing a new image, but we have a challenge.  Distressing!  So I wasn't sure how I'd scuff up the boot, so instead I created the distressed background using the Distressed Stripes embossing folder.  Then I added a sentiment and viola! I have a card perfect for a little Cowgirl.

Image: Lil Dixie, Little Lady Birthday sentiment
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Coffee Bean, Mud Pie (Raisin Boat)
Copics: B95, B97, E000, E00, E04, E34, E37, R11, R27, R29, W-2, Y11, Y15, YR20, YR23
Tools: Cricut, Cowboy Boot svg (SVG Cuts), Cuttlebug, Distressed Stripes embossing folder
