A Birthday Carousel Horse

This makes a change! A post on a Monday...whatever next? I thought I'd post this card that I've made for my grandchildren's step sister. It's her birthday this coming Saturday and I remembered that she'd told me that she loves the carousel horses that I used to make cards with when I was on the Whimsy Stamps DT. So I dusted off this birthday carousel horse for her. Of course, like any little girl, her favourite colour is PINK, so the card had to be in that colour!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Sketch & Stash - the sketch and the newest stash is the chipboard shapes that came free with a magazine.

One Stitch At A Time - choose a season or event. I chose a birthday event.

Treehouse Stamps - Use Glitter. See the close up for more detail, plus glitter added around the edges of everything.

Wee Memories - Use a bit of pink (or a lot....guess which one I've gone for!)

Paper Romance - Use some of your favourite things. I love glittery stickles, colouring with distress inks, and I must admit to having a soft spot for these carousel horses too.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
