Quilted Little Horse

I will be needing several or more baby themed cards for showers,and birth related events as my extended family seems to be having a population explosion this year  - yaaaay!!I think it is so wonderful, babies seem so scarce these days. I thought this one might be good to include with a little gift. It's not coloured in the soft pastels of baby cards but it cries out for colour and  I followed the example with somewhat different colour  choices  from the coloured version over at Beccy's Place.  I made the horse dimensional  by colouring two images,cutting out one and using double sided  tape mounted it on top of the other.

Card details:
Digital Stamp: Little Horse from Beccy's Place
Paper: Stampin' Up Card Stock Tangerine Tango; Designer Paper Stampin' Up's 'Everyday Enchantment'
Colour Medium: Prismacolor Markers
Die Cuts: Spellbinders Nestabilities  Standard and scalloped circles; Stampin' Up's 'Beautiful Wings'; Provo Craft die set for the little flowers  with the heart; Marianne designs flourish 

A simple and fun to make little card!
