Like A Rhinestone Cowgirl...

.........Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo....ok, ok I know it's a Rhinestone Cowboy, but that song was stuck in my head the whole time I was colouring up this little cutie for today's challenge over at the Graphic Marker Blog. As you may have already guessed our theme is PINK! Remember you don't need to use Graph 'It markers to enter, simply follow the theme.

Also, don't forget we have our fantastic Blog Candy up for grabs - you can win £200 of stash HERE!! 

Oh and I need to give you a heads up to tune into Create and Craft TV on 8th May for another fabulous Graph'It TV show with Nikky! If you can't watch on Sky 671, Freeview 36 you can watch online at both live during the show and online after the show on catchup so don't worry about missing it!

As if that wasn't enough Polkadoodles is celebrating it's 5th Birthday today, so to celebrate there is a blog hop, but not any old blog hop this one has freebies along the way..... here's a little taster of what's up for grabs, so I really hope you'll come and join in the fun.

After all that excitement I almost forgot to show you my card! Lol! This was a fairly quick and easy card to make and the best part was I got to play with loads of new products :D

I coloured the cowgirl from the new Work & Play Collection 3 CD (which is also available as a digi download) using the following Graph 'It Markers:

Hair 1110,1270, 3245
Skin 4170, 4155, 4135, 4115
Clothes/Embellishments 5130, 5115, 5110

The star sentiment also came from the CD, and was coloured with a 5130 Graph 'It pen and blinged up with some gemstones.

I die cut the bunting using the fantastic Doobadoo Fabric (which has a fused plastic backing and so cuts really easily and doesn't fray). The star and heart button emblishments are laser papercuts from Doobadoo which have again been coloured with a Graph 'It Marker. The lasso is made from a piece of bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by today.
