Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge Week-Punches/Die Cuts

Hello Ya'll!  I want to thank you for all the sweet comments and welcomes I received as a new DT Member to SSDS!  I am very excited to start this journey in my craft life and can't wait to see all the amazing creations the DT members and Challengers come up with!

This week's theme is Punches/Diecuts.  It is being hosted by Scrapcat Cards by Linda.  She is giving the winner a $10 gift certificate to her store.  Check it out by clicking on the Photo link below:

Be sure to stop by and join in the fun of this weeks challenge!

For this Challenge I decided to make my Hello Kitty Cowgirl Birthday Card I had planned for my Niece's Birthday coming up in March.  She will be 3!  Wow how time flies!!  I love Hello Kitty and Country themes and she seems to like them as well so this worked out perfectly!

I love to add simple little changes to digi's to make them my own.  For this Hello Kitty I added faux stitching to her bow and bandana to give it more of a country feel to me.  I also added a little glitter to glam it up, and Hot fixed Jewels to her eyes.  The hand cut matte has been faux stitched as well to give it a leather pelt look and of course I added Jewels to make it pop!  I am a jewel freak!
