This Cowboy's Hat

It's time for a little two-step down at For Fun Challenges.  We are challenging ya'll to make western themed cards this week.  I didn't have anything that quite fit the bill so I decided to make a cowboy hat instead.   Originally I was thinking of a cactus but I like writing space in my cards and this would fit into a 5X7 envelope.  While, I really like the end result, I think I hit more on Indiana Jones than Tim McGraw.  Maybe a black hat would have been better?  The little dino was so cute though that I couldn't bear changing the theme.  

The edges of the hat was distressed in TH Walnut Stain to give it a bit more dimension.  The ribbon are scraps rescued from another project.  The brim was folded up to make a Z- fold for dimension.  The Peredactyl is a discontinued stamp by Dustin Pike with Paper Makeup stamps and was coloured with copies.

I do hope you'll join us!

Additional Challenges this Card Meets:
Incy Wincy - Things with Wings
Mark's Finest Papers - Clean and Simple
Stamping with the Dragon - Things with Wings
Tuesday Throwdown - Spring Cleaning (Ribbon and the foam scraps used as pop-up dots for the dino)
