Chelsea's Birthday

Today's card is for my DIL's birthday next week.  Purple is her favorite color, so I'm sure she will love it!  This is Cowboy Dottie from Bugaboo Stamps (I couldn't find her in their new store).  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch Challenge #511 at Catch the Bug.  I colored her with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched oval die, and the scalloped mat was cut on my Cameo with a nesting image from the Silhouette Store.  The purple dp is from Cocoamint at her Etsy Shop, green plaid is The Paper Studio The Basics 12x12 pad, and purple and green cs from Hobby Lobby.  I used vintage photo distress ink around all the edges, lavender stickles on her belt and boots, and stamped the Happy Birthday (by Paper & Such) with dusty concord distress ink.  Fiskars scalloped punch, lime jute trim, and cowboy hat button from Hobby Lobby.
