Good Morning!! Today at 2 Sisters we are celebrating our 2 year blogoversary.  We have 5 amazing sponsors helping us celebrate this week. . . .

Digi Doodle Shop
The Crafting Boutique
Crafty Sentiments
Di's Digi Downloads

Our theme this week is. . . .

with the optional extra of Glitter/Bling

I created this card using Ridem Cowgirl from Digi Doodle Shop. I started with a red card base and added a piece of white card stock cut just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a piece of blue star patterned paper and added it to the top of the card.  Next I cut a piece of royal card stock and backed it in white.  I added it with a small tilt to the blue star paper. I added a piece of red dotted ribbon across the middle of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I stamped the sentiment beside the image.  I backed it in red card stock and then again in white.  I added that on top of the royal card stock tilted the opposite direction.  I added 5 mini red rhinestones under the sentiment and 3 mini clear rhinestones below the image.  I added a red and silver star sticker to the upper corner of the image and added a mini clear rhinestone to the center.  To the bottom of the card I added 3 red and silver star stickers and added a mini clear rhinestone to the center of each one.  I also added red glitter to her boots and to the red strip on her hat.
