Hemp Roppin' Cowboy

This is for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 304 - Twine. All I have is hemp, hope that works. I glued one strip to the popped up sentiment and then ran some across the card and tied a cowboy boot button to it.
My layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 314.
My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 304 - Red, White, Silver/Gray. I covered panel 2 with some tin foil then embossed it with Cuttlebug Stars folder. My base is going gray and I sponged some antique linen to tone it down. My focal image & Sentiment are from Lizzie Ann Designs and stamped in momento tuxedo black then colored with copics E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E39, E50, E51, E53, & R27. I sponged antique linen around the image then sponged the edges with tea time inks.
This also qualifies for today's STAMPIN' B'S CHALLENGE # 92 - SOMETHING NEW & OLD TIME FAVORITE. My something new is the silver cowboy boot button and my old time favorite is using hemp especially with western/masculine themes.
Hope you like it, now if I could get someone to go to work for me I could stay home and clean house and stamp. LOL.

Howdy, Neva...your little cowboy is a real cutie and I really like that embossed foil. The cowboy boot button is just perfect for your card. Glad you joined the Stampin B's new/old challenge this week.
