Mary's Birthday

Can you believe it...TWO cards in TWO days!  WOW!!  This card is for our niece-in-law's (is that a name???) birthday.  I chose Cowgirl Dottie from Bugaboo Stamps, I've had her for several years, but Jodi just brought her over to the new store and she is on sale for $1.50 this week!  She is colored with copics, clear star gelly roll pen on her belt and blouse, and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die.  The layout is for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps August Sketch.  The pink handkerchief paper and cowgirl paper are by The Paper Studio, scalloped paper from Doodlebug Design kraft in color 6x6 pad, brown cs from my stash, and light pink cs from Craft Smith pinks and reds 12x12 pad.  Brown pearls from Recollections, walnut stain distress ink, sentiment from Stampin' Up! Bootiful Occasions, cut out with SB classic oval die, and matted with SB classic scalloped oval die.
