New Sheriff in Town

     I am so tickled to have found this silly rooster image (Digi 15105 "Running Rooster") from QKR Stampede and have used it in the newest challenge, starting this morning, with a theme of "Wild West."  You'd think that as long as I've been part of the QKR DT, I'd have seen all the images but there are so many that I run across ones I haven't seen at least once or twice a month.  :-D

I decided to use the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch again.

     OK, I have to tell you that I made a tiny modification to the image which you won't find if you go to the original.  I added the sheriff's badge to his vest to coordinate with the sentiment and better fit our "Wild West" theme.  Other than that, it's exactly the same, and it's such a tiny badge, you might not have really seen it if I hadn't pointed it out.  :-D

     I colored with ProMarkers, utilizing fall colors, then die cut both the image and the dp mat with dies from QuicKutz.  I hand cut the sentiment and matted it, too, with a tiny scrap of that same dp.  The card base is made with brown CS and the orange CS strip was embossed with my "Linen" folder.  The black chevron striped paper is actually burlap.  I added the orange jute cord and the card is perfect for a masculine birthday or other celebration.
