Rocking Horse

Hi Friends!
I do hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. Do you have anything nice planned?
Maybe it is a day of crafting, or a weekend even? I am visiting my best friend on the west coast, so looking forward to a good catch up as we don't get to spend enough time with each other.

On to my card - a new baby card - using that lovely image (Rocking Horse) and sentiment from LOTV and a NEW memory box die that it simply adorable.

Out came the Copics which haven't had an airing in far too long and I spent a good couple of hours colouring the image. I really enjoyed doing it and I am pleased with the outcome as I am by no means an expert in the Copic world. I wanted a card suitable for either a boy or a girl so stuck to lemon and beige.
Here is a bit closer view of the image - its oh so cute!

The sentiment is from an LOTV set (simply sophisticated) and I stamped that in memento Rich Cocoa and the beautiful die I inked with Distress lemonade ink to change it from white and then added glamour dust wit a quickie glue pen and some platinum stickles to link the brown tones. I am not sure whether that spoiled it or not really. Papers were from my stash an the diamante hearts.

I am entering this in the following challenges:-

LOTV - Jan challenge -Anything goes -
Lisa B designs -Jan challenge -Anything goes -
Papertake Weekly - Bow and Die die and bow at the top(think that counts)

Have a wonderful weekend friends and Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and view my creations.
