I hear tell it is CAS at Kraft Journal, Pardner

Happy Labor Day, Ma'ams and Sirs. <she says as she tips her cowboy hat with her two fingers>

I reckon it is another contest over at the Kraft Journal.  Yesterday I rounded up my tools, lassoed some chalks and mowseyed on to my craft room...
Last week I received my package from Kraft Journal for winning the name the owl contest (Owliver).  The package was full of so much happy Kraft goodness!  I spread it all out on our dining room table and showed my husband.  One item definitely caught his attention: the Wild West Stamp set!  I have been wanting a cowboy themed stamp set for so long and there it was!  Woot-woot!  I took a peek at the upcoming Kraft Challenges, saw the next one was CAS and made this card.
The stamped image was from the Wild West set and the rope was also in Kraft package.  I just tied a double knot and double stapled it to the front as shown.  I created the sunset using 5 different chalks.  For the inside I die cut two papers using my new Spellbinders set, Labels Thirty One.  I stamped "Howdy Pardner" so that this could be an anytime card.

There you go, Buckaroos.  My cowboy CAS card.  Hope y'all liked it!  

Hate to cut and run but I am mighty obliged you stopped by.
