Here is my card using Southwest Cowboy. I used the image of the cowboy and the barbed wire on tan paper from MFP, and added stars, brads, twine, cord, and a cactus. I traced a small bowl to get the curve, and cut it out, then layered.

Love that silver of a moon on that layout. The romance of moon and stars, cowboy coffee by the fire. On the other hand, there's sleeping on the ground, no showers. OK, maybe cowboys aren't all that romantic ;-)
