Cowboy Courage

I made this card for an uncle that is having a birthday.  I might have gotten a little carried away with the distress ink but otherwise I think it turned out pretty cute.

The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and the quote on the outside of the card is one of many freebies from The Digi Shack.  The sentiment inside is computer generated.  The metal stars are actually spacers for necklaces.  I think they look pretty good on this card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - Metal Mickey (use metal)
Charisma Cardz - Birthdays & Celebrations
Paper Cutz - Use metal
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Wee Memories - Use twine
The Crafty Pad - Happy Birthday
Totally Stampalicious - Mix it up (stamps from 2 different sets)
Cards for Men - Sketch
Kaboodle Doodles  - Do it with Digis

That's all I've got for today, but hopefully I'll be back with more tomorrow.
