I had a lot of fun with this one! One of our swap members sent out a great website with all these vintage cowgirl pictures on it. When I saw this one, the old Mae West quote “So many men, so little time...” quickly changed to “So many cowboys, so little rope...” When I showed this to DH, he said, “So were you a little trollop or something when you were younger? The nerve! :-) Don’t you like that word? Trollop? It’s always cracked me up. I kept this design simple because I really wanted to highlight the picture. No faux postage on this one either since I wanted to keep the picture as big as possible. I started by covering my card stock with that fun orange gingham paper. Rather cowgirlish, don’t you think? Then I inked the edges of the photo to make it stand out a little more, placed it on a piece of solid green paper cut with stamp-edged scissors, added a strip of ribbon on one side, my quote on the other, and embellished the rope with little rhinestones. Very sparkly! So far, this one and the Go Go’s Retro entry are my two favorites. Next set of themes are “Snarky Mothers” and “Famous Women”. I’m currently stumped, so send me your suggestions!
