Howdy Cowboy!

can you see the cowboy hat charm, click on the pic to enlarge it
 Do you always make girly cards?  Left to my own devices I make cards that may not be frilly but would not be suitable to send to a man so it's a good thing when I'm challenged to make a masculine card.  This week Paper Pretties PWC145 Challenge is to make a masculine card.  You should play along with us so you will have something in your stash for when you need it.  You don't have to use a Paper Pretties image but if you've got then we'd love to see what you do with them.
I always say that masculine is code for brown and even though I'm joking it usually turns out that my masculine cards end up being brown, but bright colors could be perfect.  
Need some more inspiration?  Visit the Paper Pretties blog and see what the rest of the design team has created. 
So what will you do?  I'd love to see your cards, and get some ideas to get away from the brown.  After you make your card link it up here

Here's the deets:
stamp -  Paper Pretties "Cowboy Cooper"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger "Spiced Marmalade"
paper - Cosmo Cricket "Joy Ride" pad; Stampin' Up "Soft Suede" cs for base; Georgia Pacific white cs for image
miscellaneous - copics; nestibilities curved rectangles; burlap twine; cowboy hat charm
don't forget the inside

Here's the challenges:

Paper Pretties PWC145 - make a masculine card
A Sketch for You to Try March - sketch
Really Reasonable Ribbon #20 - One for the Boys (I hope the burlap twine is acceptable as a ribbonish trim)
