I could not wait to paper piece these little cuties so I pulled out a new My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side-One paper pad. It's full of patterns that are perfect for cowgirls and cowboys! I added lots of brads down the left side and the orange strip was cut out using the Postage Border Die-namics, which made spacing the brads super easy!

The layout is the February Sketch for You to Try. Look at his cute little vest and bandana!! The rest of him is coloured with copic markers.

I cut out the Country Charms Die-namics from cork and attached each one with a brad.

I wanted to carry the cork over to the right side of the card so I cut out another piece using one of the Mix & Match Banners Die-namics and stamped the sentiment. Then I trimmed off the top to shorten it just a little and added a mini library clip.

On the inside I stamped one of the sentiments from the Country Charm Sentiments Mini set onto a piece which I cut out using the Chat Bubbles Die-namics.

Next up is my little cowgirl and she's as cute as can be!!! I cut out some real denim using the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics then pleated it across the card.

I thought about piecing her skirt with real denim but this paper pack has the perfect denim paper so I made it easy on myself and used paper. Then I gave her the most darling red polka dot vest to coordinate with her hat.

Check out the gorgeous Royal Rose Die-namics! Isn't it beautiful with the scallopy petals that look so realistic?!? I cut my flower from wild cherry felt.

On the inside I combined the Sweet Stack Labels Die-namics with the First place Award Ribbon Die-namics and another sentiment from the Country Charm Sentiments Mini.

The Pure Innocence Country Charm VIP Collection is a limited quantity product that gives you the opportunity to purchase upcoming stamp sets and new Die-namics dies two weeks early!
