This months frame inspiration is dedicated to all those amazing women who have battled breast cancer. Through bravery, boldness and being themselves they are all amazing in my eyes. Cancer is an awful hurdle that anyone has to go through and I celebrate those who have to do it. Also it is call for all my amazing followers to get checked yearly so you will be around for a long long time, you are all special and if we can beat it by getting checked out then we have taken a winning step forward!

So keeping with the theme of the month my frame this month is a cowgirls frame and I wanted to share it with you.
So I used a piece of Burlap paper to cover the front of the frame then inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink in Vintage photo to create an aged look. Next I took denim fabric and created my own ribbon which I layered down the right side of the frame. Next I took 2 denim colored flowers by paper studio and adhered to the top of the ribbon.
Next I printed the cowgirl and sentiment onto card stock using Gecko Galz Ride Em Cowgirl craft kit and cut them out then inked the edges with my brown ink. Now I layered the cowgirl to the left side of the frame and the sentiment on the right and finished it off with Viva pearl pen in silver.
This makes a great cowgirl gift for your bestie.
