Howdy Card with Toy Story Cartridge

I don't know about you, but I have a son who is a major fan of the movie Toy Story, so when this cartridge was announced, there was no doubt that I would have to get it.  I have many wonderful ideas on how I want to use this cart.  This is the first card I have made with it.  I cut Woody and this fabulous wood frame image from this cart.

Here are the steps to re-create this card:
-Cut the frame and layers at 3 1/2 inches and assemble
-Cut Woody and layers at 2 1/2 inches and assemble
-Attach silver brads in the corners of the frame
-Cut brown cardstock at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches
-Cut denim blue cardstock at 5 1/4 x 4 inches
-Using the Distressed Stripes embossing folder and the Cuttlebug, emboss the denim blue cardstock
-Cut vanilla colored cardstock into a 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch strip
-Stamp sentiment in the center of the vanilla cardstock and then tear a little cardstock off the long edges
-Ink the edges of all the cardstock and die cut pieces with a Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye ink pad in Dark Brown
-Adhere the denim blue cardstock to the brown cardstock and layer the rest of the pieces as shown in the picture above
-Tie a red ribbon below the frame and add two silver brads to each end of the vanilla cardstock
-Finish it off by attaching this to an A2 cardstock base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches and folded in half the long way)

Cardstock, stamp: Stampin' Up!
Die cuts: Cricut Expression with Toy Story cartridge
Embossing: Cuttlebug with Distressed Stripes embossing folder
Ribbon: Creating Keepsakes
Brads: Making Memories
Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk (Dark Brown), Stampin' Up! (blue)
