FCCB Challenge #54

The latest Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is "April Showers" which challenges us to create a project using an umbrella or hat.  Most of the ladies entering are favoring umbrellas, so I chose a hat instead.  I've been busy making cards to send to the troops overseas and I thought my Howdy! card would work with my project.  Here's the card:

The "Howdy!" is an SVG from Just Yolie and so is the hat, but I don't remember where I got it from!  I took a piece of aluminum foil and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then burnished it with some Perfect Pearls powder.   I think it's a good male card to give to a soldier.

Thanks for looking!
