Cousin Maya is turning 8. She loves horses, and is lucky to have her own white pony named Star. When it came time to make Maya's birthday card the choice was easy - use the horse from the 'Wanted' stamp set. Most of the projects I have seen and made using this set have been with earthy colours, and often quite masculine looking. This time I wanted a pretty pony card, so instead of browns, I went with pink - well an embossed white horse on pink card (the running horses on the envelope were pink though). The finishing touches were a couple of punched stars, some pink pirouette ribbon, and sponging around the edges of all the card and the pink pirouette patterned paper.
The layout of this card was based on the sketch challenge over at Stamping 411. I love the simplicity of this sketch, and think I might have to file it away for future quick card reference:
Now this card has me thinking about a possible bargain bin project from my February challenge. I see more pretty ponies in my future... Stay tuned!
