Art With Heart

I pulled out my Distress Ink pads again and distressed the heck out of my new card using Hambo Stamps Artist Pig digi image.  Their new challenge is to use this sketch:

and any Hambo digi image.  So I looked for some papre that sang to me and came up with a piece of Basic Grey that I could "mess up" with ink.  In fact, I crumpled it, smoothed it out and swiped it with Distress Ink.
I framed my Copic-colored artist with a coordinating piece of the same line of BG paper, cutting it out with Nestabilities Labels Four, and dimensionally adhered it onto my card.
I found some fluff in the guise of netting that worked as the border strip at the top of the sketch, and just rummaged around my scraps boxes until I found the diecut "pennants".  Some bling-bling and a super sentiment finishes off my card and the Hambo Hoedown challenge for this crafter!
p.s. (The mustache on monsier pig are drawn on-he looks more "artsy" with it, don't you think?).
Your turn now--put on your dancing shoes and challenge yourself at the Hambo Hoedown.
