America's team? Well, my DH's at least...

Hi everyone and happy Monday to you all!
For all you football fans, I am very aware that the Cowboys lost their pre-season game last night. However, this card was made last week. lol! DH is a Cowboys fan (aren't all Texans?) so I made this in his honor.








Closer view - football was colored with copics, then dabbed with blender. The sun helped show the details a bit more. :D

Have a wonderful day everyone! I am trying a new thing we're I'm not blabbing all post long. (LMK what you think or if you want me to start rambling again. haha!!)
*Love and Aloha*
