Hi friends... thanks for popping by

Today's card is a commission and the message was "she loves horses and I'll leave the rest to you"
I downloaded the above image of horses from a company named  GraphicStock.
I also decided to make an easel card and introduced pinks and blues for my colour combo.  The card itself was not a bright as shown, in fact it was a lovely muted shade of pinks and blues!
Once I created the easel for the card I die cut the horse's picture using double pierced ovals by SW for CE.  I also used this die set to create the blue and pink frame as well as die cutting some patterned vellum that I wanted to use over the main image, to soften the tones.
I cut several layers of the border die and adhered them together to give dimension but to also create a step effect to support the upper part of the card.  This was then adhered to the base of the card where I had previously die cut an oval using pink card.
I printed a verse and adhered it to the back of the card, attached a few blue, pink and white flowers, stamped the Happy Mother's Day sentiment onto white card then die cut it, added mounting foam to it and attached it to the card.  Three pink gems and one white butterfly completed ensemble

Thank you for visiting my  blog, I do read all your comments and they are very appreciated
