Photofunia inspired Valentine

The Hubster has recently interested me in an App called Photofunia.   Basically you can pick a picture from a large selection and drop one of your own photographs into it to make a fun image.  They have some amazing pictures and it is fun to play with if you want to give it a go.  I created this image using the App by dropping my photo in the Wanted Poster...

I came across a challenge I hadn't seen before at There She Goes which is for "Woodgrain" and inspired by the Photofunia image and using my PTI  woodgrain stamp I decided to make a card for The Hubster for Valentine's Day.   "Wanted Dead or Alive" hardly seemed very loving so I changed the poster up a bit with Photoshop, cut it out, distressed it and stuck it onto my own wooden clad wall using the PTI stamp.  I found some wild west style images in my stash, used some My Minds Eye paper with a cowboy on it and some DCWV paper with a map of Wyoming (including Fort Laramie) and Cheyenne Country and I finished it up with some lettered brads, a horseshoe charm and a Tim Holtz claspy thingy holding another charm.  It's a shame my photo looks so washed out again.  I just can't get my photography right these days!!!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
There She Goes "Woodgrain"
Loves Rubber Stamps (which I didn't actually use!!!) "Have a Heart"
Make My Monday - "One for the Boys"
Creative Inspirations - "One for the Guys"
Aud Sentiments "Adult Valentine's Sentiment" and
Simon Says Stamp (which I didn't actually use) "Anything Goes"
