Teapot Tuesday Challenge-Back Door for Me

Come join us at the Teapot Tuesday Challenge over at SCS. This week's destination is to a daughter of one of our very own SCS member-Mutnik. Jessica had an accident while riding her horse and was hurt pretty bad-the good news is she is on the mend. We were to bring cards with images with horses. Pssst....this is why I am coming in the back door-no images for me with horses. But I think Jessica will love this just the same....after all doesn't a Zebra resemble a horse???
I am not horsing around here. No horse images in my stash. I was fretting over this to the point of having night mare's. As long as no one stirrups any trouble, I am just going to roan with it. Wouldn't want to rein in the fun. This may be a long shot, but I think the girls will bale me out and say my card does not have to be an exacta image of a horse. Maybe I am feeling my oats here, and these challenges are making me not really stable. But I am taking a chance and going out on a fence. So I decided to grab the reins and run with this. (You get it??? Fun play on words....lol)

This is a picture of the inside of my card. Just thought you might like to see that.


Spellbinders - Carnation Shapabilities, Foliage Shapabilities, Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Large Oval Nestabilities
Punches: Martha Stewart- Deep Edge Garden Gate Border
Miscellaneous: Feather, Ribbon, Stickles, Brads

This card was so easy to make. From start to finish, I probably did it in 1 hour and 15 minutes. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

This is just stunning. Hard to single out anything as "special" on such a special card, but the feathers are an inspired touch. Thanks for playing with us at There's Magic in the Air.
