A Buckaroo Birthday FM186

Good morning!  Thanks for stopping by to visit me here at Ink a Doodle Creations.  This week has been going by so fast that I almost forgot to post about my challenge card for the Design Team call over at Friday Mashup!  Wish me luck!!

Here is the sketch that we were to play along with.  The mashup part was to add a special element that you might not normally see.  Well even though, a clothespin is not that un-normal, its still always a favorite of mine to add to a card, so I ran with it!!  Well, I didn't actually run with it, but I did clip it on!!!  That there, was a little Hump Day humor!!
And here is my take on the sketch.  One of the fun stamp sets I just love is the Yee-Haw Photopolymer set.  Can you believe its my first time to crack it open?!  I know, its sad really!:(  But I can say, I had a lot of fun with it, so much that I plan to play with it later today for another project card.
I used the Hardwood background stamp and water colored it with pool party ink.  I added a side layer of hello honey for my burlap strips to go on.  I love working with burlap, its so fun and it was perfect for a cowboy type card. 
As you can see with the Sheriff's badge, I also water colored it in hello honey and pool party.  I added some looped gold bakers twine behind it and tied a on a small piece to the clothespin.  I stuck it on tight with a couple foam dots to make it POP!!! 
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ basic gray, whisper white, hello honey
Ink ~ basic gray, hello honey, pool party
Stamp set ~ hardwood and yee-haw
Misc. ~ burlap ribbon, gold bakers twine, foam dots, distressing tool
I hope you have enjoyed by challenge/design team call card.  Wish me luck!!

Cynthia, this is such a fun birthday card! I like how you used the burlap in your sketch and of course the clothespin and twine with the sheriff badge. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
