"Howdy" Card - I'm loving this one!

I just did this sketch challeng over on Cafemom.
I ended up flipping the sketch around. I didn't use a
flower - which if you knew me very well you would understand that I will use a flower WHENEVER possible because I love them on cards and LO's. Anyway, I used some of my new CMTH stamps and some SU paper. I embossed the background - which is my first time doing that and I loved it. Then I also inked over the embossing. Well, I then tried wiping a little bit off with my finger that I had wet down (yes with my tongue - yuck right?) and it got darker so I did it all over the back ground. I think it looks pretty cool. The "Howdy" is from an alphabet rub-on set that I have. This is a card that I really, really like how it turned out and I can't say that a lot.

Very cute card. I just got heat embossing material and have been playing with it, I have decided it's my new favorite toy, at least until I can get a cuttlebug! Your card is beautiful, great technique!
