Happy 300th Birthday!

Today is the 300th Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I am so very happy to be one of the hostesses for that challenge and today I am honoring Jen Mitchell. She has such a classy gallery. I loved looking through all of her beautiful designs. The big button and burlap caught my eye in this card.

I turned the layout, kept the button and burlap, but changed colors and images. I stamped Cowboy Christmas (available at i {heart} papers) on Very Vanilla 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 burlap is Natural Jute Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I hope you will come play along in the 300th FS Challenge this week~!

What a great image Judy and the embellishing really complements the feel of your card.

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at Allsorts challenge this week and Stamping Sensations this month, although I'm afraid you have if combined more challenges than our rules permit on the latter.
