horse crazy

Good morning - back with another card. This is a card commissioned by a friend for a horse lover. She saw the stamp by Coronado Island Stamps called "True Love" and asked me to make her a birthday card with it. Here is what I came up with -
I stamped the image using a VersaMagic chalk ink - jumbo java and used a Go Kreate die - Large frame Frilly#10. I distressed the edges using a contrasting VersaMagic - persimmon.
The backing papers are by Boho Chic. The flowers are from the HobbyHouse and I added some card candy also from there. The sentiment is raised and some lovely wools added to finish it off.

I again used the Boho Chic papers to make the inside of the card as special as the front. I used a Tim Holtz flourish and several different flower punches which once assembled I added a small peach pearl. The sentiment I made on microsoft word and is from a book -" Thinking of You - a Greeting for Every Occasion ". I am entering this card in the following challenges -    2sisterschallenge-94-inside-out      cutiepiechallenge./Die cuts and punches ( hope this is cute enough)          divasbydesignchallenge-38-chocolate -( chocolate horses!)             joyfulstamper/inspire-me-fridays-61-anything-goes  greatimpressionsstamps./challenge-4die-cuts-or-punches
