An equine birthday......

My brother Nick had his birthday on 12th December. Now he and his wife Lisa look after a horse called Smurf- they've kind of adopted it- and I thought that a horse would be perfect for his card. This is a rather grand horse, more of a dray-horse than a showjumper methinks! I cut the horse from black pearlised cardstock (this is the simplest version from the handbook) and the livery was cut from gold and ivory pearlised cardstock. I added an 'S' for Smurf to the saddle. The papers in shades of black, gold and ivory are from Dovecraft. 'NICK' was cut from black pearlised card shadowed with gold mirri, and the sentiment and brackets were cut from gold mirri. All elements were adhered with foam pads.
