Just Horsin' Around


I have a card to share with you today that just evolved on it's own. I didn't have anything in mind when I stamped this fun Lindy's Stamp Gang horse image, but everything just came together once I decided to add some sequin stars from my stash. The sentiment was computer generated because this horse looks like he's doing a dance with stars instead of a partner! LOL The dsp background has been in my stash since my scrapbooking days, and I added a few banner tabs with a SU! punch. I colored the image with Copics, and embossed the lower panel with a SU! decorative dots ef. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

SOSS#6 - "E" is for embellishments (I used sequins)
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes with sequins
Snippets Playground #122 - must use snippets

Thanks for checking in today and I wish you blue skies and lots of sunshine!

OMGosh what a cute and fun card Carol! I love that horse and his goofy expression. He looks like he has some fancy dance moves. lol That distress paper is perfect and I love the embossed dots. The flags peeking out are so fun, but it is those sequin stars that I love so much! Great color combo on this one. Hugs
