Cowboy Kid...

I really try and post things that are using current stamps and things, but I needed a birthday card for a 5 year old and I have had this set forever and never used it. It was actually in my pile of stuff to sell...maybe I will hold on to it for a bit. :) Anyway, I thought it would be perfect for this card. :)
My favorite part is the ribbon, its hard to tell, but I colored all the white stripes with my Creamy Caramel marker to make it look old and dirty, it just looked to clean on the card before. :) Also, what I did on the strip behind the ribbon was stamped it first then I crumpled it up and then used my sponge to smear caramel ink all over it. :)

Ink: Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Basic Grey, Blush Blossom, Real Red, Summer Sun, Not Quite Navy

Such a cute idea, I haven't colored ribbon much and I rarely use caramel but I think it looks really great! I will have to try it now.
