To a cowboy...

There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is to make a Father's Day card or a card inspired by nature. I went with the masculine option. I've used an image from Stitchy Bear Designs - our Sponsor for June.
I colored the image using my Promarkers. I rummaged through my huge pile of DPs and found two I found suitable for the cowboy theme. Then I cut out some stars from brown card stock, added a torn piece of corrugated cardboard and added a metal cowboy hat attached with string. The sentiment is made using my Dymo.

I'd like to enter these challenges as well:
1) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #231 Use Your Favorite Embellishment
2) Cardz 4 Guyz  - #54 Texture
3) Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #300 Masculine
4) Crafty Boots - Father's Day / Man in your Life

How lucky you found a cowboy hat charm! It looks great there with the twine, echoing the lasso. I think they papers and everything go beautifully for the cowboy look.
