Special Card for a Horse Lover

I'm afraid this will have to be my last posting for a few weeks as I'm off to France on Friday and have loads to do before then. We have a home there so the grass will be hiding elephants and the weeds will have taken over. That's the first week taken care of. The 2nd week we are taking our camper away for a real holiday - this will be a novelty as last summer we went for 4 weeks and only had one day out. It's no wonder our son thinks holidays are boring! For the 3rd week Robin's French friend who has moved to the South is coming to stay which will be lovely for him and a chance for him to talk in French again. He is fluent after going to school there for 2 years.
I'm taking paper, stamps ( all those I haven't played with yet ), Promarkers and my Inktense water colour pencils so I'll have plenty to keep me happy.
I have been asked to make an 18th birthday card for someone's Grand-daughter who loves horses so thought I'd use this stamp that I've had for a while from Lili of the Valley. Isn't she just a gorgeous sweet girl with her pony. Spot the cheeky little mouse eating the apple core.


I stamped 3 images, cut out  for various layers, coloured with Promarkers and used a Nestabilities Labels die. 

Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch paper
LOTV  Me and My Pony stamp
Sizzix Bigz dies - swirls

Everybody-art-challenge - pink and brown ( hope there's enough of each )
Oh-la-la creations - special friend
Allsorts - mum / special lady
Charisma Cardz - birthday for a teen
Pixie Dust Studio - Let's go to the movies ( Black Beauty)
