Old Fashioned Romance

                                                                                     Welcome everyone :o)

                       Today is the INSPIRATION CHALLENGE at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE BLOG.

                PAT FRANK  has been our hostess this month. Here is the photograph she gave us for our Inspiration:
                                                      ( these two beautiful little girls are her Granddaughters!! )


                                                                Look at all the fabulous colours, shine and interest !!

                                                           I choose to do a Carousel Horse - I think many of us did :o)

                        Both my images are from DIANA'S STORE: CIRCUS TILDA #367 and CAROUSEL HORSE #433

                                                                                Here is the front of my card:


As you can see I have made my card out of Gold Card Stock.
Then I have used Bazzil Red and used a MS corner punch of Bubbles.
 I used a new Spellbinder die to cut out a purple piece of Bazzil.

My horse is coloured with Copic's as always LOL ( listed at end of post )
I have used two tickets that I purchased somewhere? a long while ago.
I have also used Gold pearls from Michaels.
The horses mane, tail and hoofs have Crystal Lacquer on them.
I have also used Dazzling Diamonds from SU for several places on the horses 'clothes'.

Here are more pictures:


The inside of my card:


Tilda has Crystal Lacquer on her shoes.
Her head band and all the lace bits of her dress have Dazzling Diamonds on them.
I used two pieces of 1/4 inch gold ribbon to pick up the gold from the card front.


Here is the right hand side of the card:


Many thanks for coming by to see what I made this time.

Wow! my friend it was a total surprise to find the Circus Tilda on the inside, what a great idea as opposed to just having her sit on the horse. Your coloring is looking great too. Hope you are feeling better, we gotta chat soon
