Anniversary card

A friend of mine is mad about horses and her husband asked me to make an Anniversary card for her. I immediately thought of this beautiful digi image from Whimsy. I debated on the colour scheme and decided on this one which suits her perfectly. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I added a few streaks with a Sakura goldstar pen to the mane and glitter to the wings of course.

The papers are Papermania Boutique which are just great for this 8 x 8 card. The sentiment was produced on the PC and then cut with a Spellbinders die. I had these little green hearts in a set and have never used them but they match the colour scheme here. I used various MS punches (corner, PATP, heart border and 2 leaf punches), added some Papermania ribbon to the strips to match the pole in the image. Flowers are Wild Orchid with punched leaves.
Challenges:
Create 4 fun fab sketch
Totally Gorjuss Wild Thing (any animal)
Crafty Catz Chocolate and green
Tuesday Taggers It takes all sorts (anything goes)
Allsorts At least 3 punches (I used 5)
