Horsing Around

Hello everyone,

Today's post is another commissioned Mother's Day card.

The printed paper is Prima Forever Young layered on Stampin' Up Ruby Red.  The images are EK Success Horses affixed to Recollections Vanilla and layered on Early Espresso, Ruby Red and Recollections Vanilla.  The sentiment is Avery Elle So Happy stamped in Early Espresso on Recollections Vanilla.  The printed paper is highlighted with Cinnamon Stickles.

This special mother has a hobby farm and received this card from her son.  It's not particularly frou frou or feminine, notwithstanding the lovely Stickles.  The colours in the stickers dictated the rest of the colours used.  This card turned out so much better than I expected.  Stickers, though a great alternative to stamped images, can be tricky because they can look extremely odd.  What is great about this particular pair is that there is a left and right horse and they are facing each other.  Much more interesting!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
