VC Challenge #1

Hello, and thanks for stopping by today! It's less than half an hour till midnight, so I'm going to go ahead and make this post for tomorrow. That's close enough for me!
This card was inspired by the first ever Victoria Case weekly sketch challenge. What an awesome sketch this is, and this image was a lot of fun to color. I had to make this horse a Palomino. I don't know why, other than I've always thought they were so beautiful. The stamp is called A Horse Of Course, and it is illustrated by Victoria Case. I just crack up every time I see those big front teeth, and those eyes are sooo sweet!! The K&Co. Urban Rapsody paper all coordinates so well, and I actually cut the horse shoes from the back side of the brown print paper behind the image. How lucky was that to find horse shoes in that package of paper?? Since I'm at my grandma's and there's no sewing machine, I decided to do a little faux stitching.
Supply List
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, K&Co. Urban Rapsody DP
Ink: Black Stazon, Various SU inks for watercoloring
Stamps: A Horse Of Course from Victoria Case
Accessories: So Saffron Brads, Prima Flowers, Crafter's Tool Kit, Chocolate Chip SU Marker, Signo White Gel Pen

I'm going to keep this short and sweet today, because I'm getting tired and midnight is closing in. Thanks again for stopping by. I always look forward to your comments, so please don't hesitate to tell me what ya think! Have a beautiful and blessed day!

Love Ya!

Giddy up, girlfriend! This card has it all! Love the flowers tucked behind the main image! I have this paper (one of those "HAD" to have-its) and haven't used it. It looks soooo good on your card! Love your coloring on this, especially the wood fence. Brilliant job!
