A Holiday Howdy

Today I want to share with you one of my less-traditional and more masculine Christmas cards. We have a few friends that live on ranches, and when I saw this stamp set by Flourishes, I knew I had to make a few!
I stamped Cowboy Christmas (available at i {heart} papers) on Very Vanilla cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped with a retired SU! ink that was one of my favorites: Blue Bayou. I cut it all out with Spellbinders Labels Four. I added some texture with a little aqua strip of cardstock, which I embossed with Lifestyle Craft's Zig Zag embossing folder.
My favorite part of the card is the Natural Jute Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I think it adds some really fun texture and makes the card a little more rustic. The Jute Ribbon also comes in Ivory, Red, Moss, Slate, Black and Burgundy. A couple of buttons and it's ready to go~!

Our current challenge at RRR is Winter Holiday with Ribbon! Come play along! And be sure to check out the AMAZING BLOG CANDY that Bonnie has up for grabs! Oh my goodness!
