Ride 'em Cowboy

This is my second post today. Please scroll down for my Winter Wonderland DT card.

Regular readers will know how much I love Sugar Nellie stamps and I have used this darling Elisabeth stamp from Sugar Nellies for my card. He has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I've gone for a distressed look with my TH tool and DI Wild Honey. The papers are some very old Forever Friends. Now hands up all those of you who bought eyelets and never use them. I rarely do but thought they were perfect to use with the faux leather strips I bought from The Works. The sentiment is from Lucy Cromwell and I added some Woodware punched stars, some of them crimped, and wound some more of the faux leather round one of them. I also added a horse charm from EBay.

Fabulous card Marianne, I do love these other Sugar Nellie stamps.
I have 1000's of eyelets but never use them anymore, I guess I should be a bit more adventurous!

PS The leaf die is a Magnolia Doo Hickey, I think it's called heart swirl?
