Southwest Cowboy Birthday Braids

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 360 - Twine IT Up. I hope what I did is OK, I ran one piece across the hat and braided one strand and attached it with a brad.
My layout is from today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 153 - Sketch by loll. I used reverse masking for my 3 color blocks. I started by punching out the 3 different sizes of deckled punches on paper then began at the bottom with certainly celery, middle with crumb cake and top with bashful blue. I then stamped the cactus in lucky limeade, the cowboy in choc chip and the sentiment in bashful blue. I bought this set just for that hunk-a cowboy, wowzer.
Happy Monday to all my fellow cyber challenge junkies. LOL.
