Horse Love!

I have a very dear friend who will be celebrating her 65th birthday next week & one of the greatest loves in her life are horses.....her husband & Labrador retrievers are right up there too! We recently went to see an amazing show called Cavallia....Odysseo which features 64 gorgeous horses & some very talented humans.  I was in awe of not only the beauty of the  horses but also how intelligent they were. It was incredible to watch them go through their routines with no one touching them. If you get the chance to see Odysseo be sure you go. You will not regret one minute of it!

This beautiful image is a Serendipity stamp (thank you Sue!!) which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  It looks just like one of Darlene's horses called Tante, white blaze & all. I used kraft cardstock with the perfect DP from Kaisercraft to create a gatefold card.  A few little horseshoes, some bronze brads & a jute "rope" & voila, there you have it, the perfect card for a horse lover!
