Baby Cowboy & a Butterfly

Happy Saturday everyone! Here's my card for the inspiration challenge over on Splitcoast today.
 The inspiration web site was the Sugar Chic Baby Etsy Shop - I was inspired by this cowboy bib.
I recently purchased this fun little bib stamp by Toomuchfun Rubberstamps at a scrapping/stamping show and this was the perfect opportunity to use it!

The stampings on the bib and background are from Back in the Saddle and Way Out West by Waltzingmouse.

Before I go -  I just wanted to share a picture I took in my garden today -  this wonderful monarch butterfly was fluttering around my butterfly bush (planted specifically to attract these beauties!) -  she wouldn't open her wings for me so you can just catch a glimpse of the lovely orange.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamps: Bib by Toomuchfun Rubberstamps, cowboy boots, star, horseshoes, Yee Haw Round up the Possee from Back in the Saddle Background stamp and badge from Way Out West - Waltzingmouse  
Paper: white, Spring Rain - PTI  
Ink: Archival Coffee, Memento Summer Sky  
Accessories: foam tape, rhinestones - Bazzill, ribbon - May Arts
