Wild West Show Today!

Well, maybe not an actual show, but a great card for a boy's birthday instead.  One of my team mates made a card similar to this and it gave me the idea for this card.

I combined the Lil Billy image with the Ranch image using the free software Gimp.  Several people have commented how they didn't know how to use Gimp.  Check out the eBook from Digital Delights.  It will tell you everything you need to know to use Gimp to work with your digital images.

The closed card front has really great horse paper from Sugar Tree.

Paper: Early Espresso, Wild West Paper Pack, Sugar Tree Steve's Pages
Markers/Ink: Copics - E01, E02, E15, E17, E18, E23, E25, E27, W5, W6, C3, C5, C7, C8, C10, R35, Y13, Y15, YG93, YG95
