I can't get "ogre" you!

Here we are on week 11 for the Hambo Hoedown Challenges!  Our free digi this week is this cute 'ogre'!  He came with a couple of sentiments and I chose "I can't get 'ogre' you"!  As part of our challenge we were also to use distressing on our card, which I don't do a whole lot of, but I do like the look of it!  I used my distressing tool and distressed around the edges of the Early Espresso Panel as well as the around the inside of the oval.  I also distressed around the edges of the sentiment.  Then I took my scissors and made a lot of gouges in the front panel to distress it as well.  Coming up with a card using this image was a bit of a challenge for me but it made me put my thinking cap on and I guess that's what challenges are for, aren't they?  I hope you like it!
