I had a lot of fun making this card.  I haven't distressed a card in a longtime.  I stamped the cowboy and then wadded up the image.  I flattened it back out, then sponged it with early espresso.  I stamped the background of the large dark chocolate bar piecd with the barbed wire image that is in the set, but you can't see it in the photo.   It has a very subtle look IRL.

Stamps:  Hey Cowboy, sentiment Fabulous Dogs
Paper:  Corn Husk, Dark Chocolate Bar, blue
Ink:  early espresso
Misc:  mini paper clip, brown twine

Thanks for joining us today.  Please come back tomorrow for our last day of the hop.

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie
