Masculine Christmas

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! 

Just a quick post here featuring these beautiful horses.  The image is from Impression Obsession and this will be a special Christmas card for one of the males on my list.  Super  CAS with some unknown DP that I've had for a long time.  I stamped the image on Very Vanilla and only colored the hats, adding a some shine with my glitter pen.  The silver cording is actually not round - but flat.  Still not sure where that came from either.  Things always have a way of just "appearing" in my craft room (at least that's the excuse I give my hubby anyway)!!



I'll enter this in the challenge at Impression Obsession (It's a Man's World) and Mark's Finest Papers (Back to Nature).

Thanks for stopping by......
