Western Thank You Card

A friend of mine asked me to make a Thank You card for someone who donated a saddle to use as a fund raiser for our annual Bullriding Bible Camp.  I knew the card had to have a saddle on it!
 I used the Old West cartridge for all of it. 
 The patterened paper on the saddle is from an assortment of paper I won from Oh My Crafts.  I used a scalloped hole punch and gold paper from my scraps to make the conchos and folded tiny strips of brown paper for the latigo.  The rope is twine that was on a box of something I ordered.
 The border punch is from The Paper Studio
 And an envelope to match!  I hope both my friend and the donor like the card.  I'm really pleased with the result. 

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Love To Crop - Fall colors
Crafting Misfit - Show and Tell
Do You Stack Up - texture
CASual Fridays - Fall colors & paper piecing
