Cowgirl Ava giddy-ups onto a birthday card


Hello to you!!!
I have to be sorta sneaky about this post,
because although I made the card
right in front of her face,
I told my stepdaughter that it was
for someone else!!
She can read though, so if she happens by,
the cat will be out of the bag!!
Her 9th birthday is right around the corner,
and she loves horses, so when I bought
these images, which you can read more about
further down the post,
I had her birthday card in mind.


I've made this card for 2 challenges,
although I think I missed the cut-off at CC.
Charisma Cardz Challenge
has a sketch by Joanne
and
The Pink Elephant
has a recipe:
3 brads, 1 flower and 1 designer paper.

The pic has a shadow over it,
but I was having trouble editing,
so shadowy pic it is!!

Pink Cat Studios has designed The Weiman Wranglers digital stamps to honor the life of little Ethan Weiman and raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois. You can learn more about little Ethan HERE.
Although the fundraiser is now over, you may still be interested in the looking at what this gracious company has done to help a worthy cause.

The DP is Creative Imaginations,
the rope is hemp, the heart is craft cardstock,
I've coloured with watercolours and
distressed with frayed burlap and worn lipstick.
The flower is Prima and the brads are ???
missing their label!!!

Thanks for looking,
enjoy the rest of your week!!
Stephanne
