Red White and Blue Cowboy Birthday Card

Hi! Here's a birthday card I made for a friend's 50th birthday. The party was a western theme so I decided to use the cowboy from A Child's Year cartridge. The cowboy has little star spurs on his boots, so I went with a red, white, and blue theme. I really like the denim paper stack used for this card. The pocket was a design on the cardstock and it worked perfect to hold a gift card.
