The Jersey Girl's gone Western?!?!

Has the Jersey Girl lost her mind? How in the world did this jersey shore pizza eatin, "sawsage" pepper & onion sandwich from the boardwalk luvin girl create a cowgirl card of all things? I'm still trying to figure it out...but no matter, I really like how the card came out!

I was inspired by a card I saw on SCS, and this is my version of that card. (the original card can be seen here) I didn't have any stamps with roses at the time I made this (those will be coming soon as I'm IN LOVE with the new "A Rose Is A Rose" Stampin Up! set that will be available August 11th) so I used another "western looking" flower. I'm sure once I get the new roses set I'll make a few more of these cards.

I stayed with the same colors (regal rose & purely pomegranite), and sponged around the cowgirl. I also added glassy glaze around the dust swirls to make them pop. The cowgirl & the dust swirl are on shimmering paper, which you can't really see in the pic, but it gives it more of a girly look.

I still can't believe I made a cowgirl card...shoot I still can't belive I bought the bronc busters set! But I guess TX is growing on me...well that might be pushing it a bit. Let's just say I'm no longer laughing at everyone I see in a cowboy hat...NOW THATS GROWTH!
