Today is the start of a new Stella Says Sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug, and this is my Guest Designer card.

My starting point was the cute image AKV 2 cowboy - howdy.
I chose a star patterned DP and chose elements I felt suited the cowboy theme.
I tied a lasso using string. The banner with the sentiment is hand cut, and I decided to add some burlap behind the paper for texture.
I added 3 star brads that have been in my stash for ages. 

I'd also like to participate in these challenges with my card:
1) Creative Knockouts - #63 Banner
2) Meljens Designs - #236 Hot Chocolate (use brown)
3) Send a Smile for Kids - Anything Goes 4 Kids
