It's a small world

Hello! Happy Sunday!
I feel a little bit tired today, after the wedding I went yesterday and we went to bed quite late... Anyways, I would like to show you a card I made for this forthnight at Gingerloft and our challenge is: It's a small world, basically represent where you are from. 

As I am from Argentina and at this moment I live in Kazakhstan I chose a horse to represent where I am from (horses everywhere in both coutries). The image is called Wild Fire and I colored it with Koh-i-noor aquarelable pencils. I cut it out and placed it on a double circle mat white and black. I used foam tape for it.

The base cardstock is a beige Folia one and I used 4 petals flower Sizzix embossing folder. I used some foam tape to glue it to the card base.

The ribbon is a tipical Argentinean one, it's a folk ribbon called "guardapampa" and comes in different colors.

As this card will be for a man, I kept it simple and masculine. I didn't know if to put the sentiment or not... finally decided that only I write inside :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
House of cards: sketch
Crafting with dragonflies: card for a guy
Crazy 4 challenges: animals
Hiding in my craftrom: masculine birthday
Inky impressions: masculine
Oldie but goodie: embossing (my ribbon is like 2 years old but frist time I use it!)
