Horsey Christmas Card

This card was a special request for a little girl's horse riding instructor ... I love it when a card turns out just like what you'd imagined in your head!

I've used Brayden from High Hopes - coloured with my new Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils ... which I'm lovin!!
The stitched borders from Paper Smooches were also a recent treat - I imagine they'll be appearing on quite a few of my Christmas cards this year :)
Snowflakes are also Paper Smooches dies.

  20. Lynne, may I ask if you remember what colour is that horse's mane that you used or did you combine some colours to get that? Lovely darker brown. I also love to colour with Inktense pencils, but I usually struggle with darker brown. My saddle brown is almost half the length of the other pencils, it might be obvious without saying that it is my favourite brown... :)

  21. Absolutely adorable, Lynne! Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us at Stamping Sensations.


  22. Such a sweet card. I love your beautifully coloured horse and your layout. I'm in love with those die cut stitched hills. Just perfect for our challenge this week. Thank you for sharing your card and joining in with the fun at Sweet Stampin’ this week and good luck. Hugs Janine xx
