You said you were a bushranger

Bring out the inner cowboy!
I used the October sketch challenge from Handmade by Suzanne for this page. There is a funny story behind the title:

My husband and I met in Europe and I had no idea what a bushranger was. We had a little misunderstanding with his job description...
The journalling says,
"You said you were a bushranger, an Australian cowboy. That's what you said. Is it any surprise that I expected you to look like Crocodile Dundee? You could have mentioned that you worked as an actor in a bushranger SHOW."

Here's a cowboy star made from metallic cardstock, using an embossing folder:

a lasso:

and a must-have: a horse

I really like that Bingo embossing folder. Thanks for the loan, Sandy!
