Cactus Cowboy Birthday Card

This birthday card went out to a former equestrian and longtime country music fan friend of ours. He so enjoyed the cowboy siesta card I sent him last year, I decided to go with another cowboy theme this year. 

The digi is from QKR Stampede – Cactus digital stamp. The cactus digital paper is by Steph Fizer Coleman and was a freebie that unfortunately, I no longer see offered. The sentiment was created with Concurso Moderne BTN font.

This little Dovecraft Cactus die (picked up at my favorite outlet shop a while back) has been languishing in a drawer, waiting for me to use it; I was glad to finally do so. I topped it off with some twine and a button.
