Sketch Saturday Challenge #290

Happy Saturday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We had the week off, but are back with one more sketch challenge this year at Sketch Saturday.  

The sponsor this week is Prairie Fairy and the prize is $10 gift certificate.
Here is Sketch #290 (designed by Jen):
My Interpretation:
I used an image from Sparkle Creations - Cowgirl Cloe illustrated by Aki Fukuoka.  I bought this image specifically for our niece Lauren's birthday.  Her birthday was in November and lived most of her life in Texas.  

You may think our niece is a little girl - nope, she turned 29.  Very hard to believe especially since I'm 29 - LOL.  She moved back in Texas with her husband this year, so this seemed like a fitting birthday card.
