A Horse for Dad

My dad's birthday is fast approaching. Main reason I know this is because so is my Daughter's and they share the same birthday date. Even though we are so far away from him she shares a special bond with her Bampy. With this in mind today I decided to work on making a card for him. He loves horses. Mainly Clydesdale (Shire) horses. You know the one's that pull the Budweiser cart. Anyway I don't have a stamp of those but what I do have is some magnolia images that Renee sent me and it just so happens that among them was some horse images so I decided to use one of those. I also had some left over paper from a couple of scrapbook pages that I wanted to use with it.


Cardstock: Old Olive and Real Rust

DP: Unknown

Image: Magnolia
Embellishments: Buttons, hemp cord and Dimensionals

The card seems to work well for a couple of challenges this week so I am going to enter it on Cute Card Thursday and Papertake Weekly. It was a simple card but took a while due to my mojo being a little on the fritz. Still I think it came out well in the end.
