At the Horse Show




Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I have a super quick post for you today. I decided for my card today to ink up this adorable image by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is called At the Horse Show and I think she's just adorable. She actually reminds me a lot of me as a little girl. I probably had every Breyer horse ever made :) My Great Aunt Lydia used to crochet me horse blankets for my Breyer horses. I also used to ride competitively in horse shows. I loved horses (until one day I had a really bad fall, haven't been up on one since). I just finished an awesome book called The Lost Hours by Karen White. It was SO good and was actually about a horseback rider who had a really bad fall so I could definitely relate. I recommend anything by Karen White, I'm just pouring through her books, I think they are absolutely fabulous!

Anyway, back to the card. I colored the image with copics and then cut the image out using my nestabilities. While the image was still in the nestability, I sponged around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock (Chocolate Chip and Bordering Blue). The design paper is from MME (Bella Bella collection). For some finishing touches, I added a bow, dew drops, Primas, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon.
