Bugaboo Male Call Sketch Challenge

This week's challenge at Bugaboo Stamps is to make a card for a boy, guy or man using the given sketch - check it out at Catch the Bug Blogspot.   For my submission, I chose the Bugaboo Cowboy Lasso.  I coloured the image with copics & although it's hard to see, I did sponge in colour behind the dude to give him some dimesion.  I did cheat a bit... the sketch shows two flowers & I added a third.  The flowers are Petaloos & I pulled the gem centre off & glued in some pearls so they would match the rest of the embellishments.  Instead of using the lasso in the image, I added one by gluing down some jute.
