You Can Count on Me

When it comes to the Hambo Hoedown, you can count on me to enter their challenge every week.  Not only do players get a chance to win a free dig, but each player gets a free digi just for entering!!
So the sentiment on my card that came with the Hambo Stamps digi image "Candles" works for both the card and my attitude toward blog challenges, especially the Hambo Hoedown.
The challenge there is to have FOUR of something on your card, besides the four candles in their image.  I have four blocks of patterned paper on the background of my card front.  I used patterned paper from DCWV adhesive-backed paper stack, placing it onto Paper Trey cardstock.  I framed the sentiment and the image in the same cardstock.
On the inside, I again colored my image, printed on a smaller scale except for the candle on the left, and merged the rest of the sentiment with the image.  More of the same DCWV patterned paper frames my image and sentiment.
I put five candles on the inside because I'm taking my granddaughter to her cousin's 5th birthday party.  She's 6 months older than my Bella (and she's actually MY cousin's daughter).
Have you danced in the Hoedown yet?  It's a great challenge with some of the funniest digi's around.  Go and have some fun, and as always, keep crafting!!
