Play TicTacToe at the Hambo Hoedown

I mae a card using the new Hambo Stamps digi-image "Indian girl" and am playing in the Hambo Hoedown Challenge #27:  I Chose my embellishments from their TicTacToe Board and made a card with ribbon, eyelets and punches. 
The Hambo CHallenge Blog has this to say about this week's challenge:  Not only will players receive a free digi image, but----
“Each of the first four weeks in August we will be choosing one participant to be a Guest Designer for one week of our September Hoedown Challenges! Hoedown Guest Designers would receive their image early and have their card showcased at the Hoedown”
My card is a step fold card.  i printed, colored and pieced my digi image and placed it on the front face of my card.  I used Copics E00 & YR61 for the skin color, and 100, C1&3 for her hair. Her outfit and mocassins are paper pieced.  I attached a feather onto her headband for a little texture.
I used my Crop-a-Dile to place eyelets on my linen cloth ribbon, and punched the corners of my patterned papers.  I also punched some random swirls that i attached to the front of my card.  I added a handmade flower (thanks Anna), some cloud and sun stickers/diecuts, and glitzed the sun.
the sentiment reads:  "Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain"  I thought it a perfect sentiment, as my little Indian girl seems to be dancing her own little rain dance.
I hope you like my card, and I hope you have time to play at the hoedown this week!
