Special

This is my Valentine's Day card for my oldest daughter.  She love horses, and I actually picked this horse image from DRS Designs knowing I would use it on a card for her.  I had forgotten about it until I was digging through a box of stamps (mostly brand new) looking for something else and came across it.  So glad I did.  I decided to give it a western feel and for me that meant some distressing, both with a pair of scissors and some caramel ink.  I added a die cut horseshoe on some rope I had recycled from some packaging or other.  Thought I would end up using it on a nautical card, but it worked perfectly for this.  

Supplies:
Stamps: DRS Designs horse; Verve "Take Note" sentiment
MFT western charm set--horseshoe

Challenges:
Word Art Wednesday #268--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Creative Fingers #129--anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper--anything goes with patterned paper
C.R.A.F.T. #402--recycle (the twine/rope)
Aud Sentiments #173--Valentine's/love
CardzTV #2--Valentine's Day with sketch (I chose sketch #2)
Di's Digi Designs--include an animal
Simon Says Stamp Monday--use your favorite tool (my favorite tool is definitely my die cutting machine--I barely make a card without using it at least once)
