Just for fun

Hi all!  Just throwing in a quick post that I made for fun!  I have a bunch of stamps I got for Christmas that are screaming for ink, so I thought I'd answer the call!  Sheriff Ian was calling the loudest ;)  I colored him with Copics and paper pieced the neckerchief.  I found that ribbon at Joann's and had to have it!  I frayed the edges.  The eyelets were just so plain so I "roped them up" with hemp twine.  The background cardstock is embossed with Stars folder for CB.  I "distressed" the edges with SU's Close to Cocoa ink and a sponge (hard to see in the photo!)  Thanks for checking him out :)

This card fits challenges at:

Anya Ink:  Embossing
Polly Craft:  Distressing (edges inked)
Double Dutch: Boys only
