Horse Frontier

I've always loved horses so was pleased to see this new set in the Annual Catalog last June!  I thought it would work great for Connie and Mary's CWCM-002 Sketch Challenge this week. 
I chose a print from Parker's Patterns DSP (Spring Catalog) and coordinating Not Quite Navy cardstock for the background papers.  It was love at first sight with this paper since I love all things Southwest (even though this dsp works with many other styles of artwork also!)   The card is Cajun Craze with a layer of Crumb Cake stamped lightly with the horseshoe image in Crumb Cake then run through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
I added some soft Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze color to the horse with a Blender Pen and reinkers.  For the banner, I adhered the Natural Ribbon (Spring Catalog) to Not Quite Navy then ran it through the Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing Folder (then spritzed it with hairspray to hold the embossed texture-- don't know if it was needed but thought it wouldn't hurt!)  Yea, it worked!

Love these Soda Pop Tops in the Spring Catalogthis one went through the Big Shot with one tab open and only a cutting plate on top so it wouldn't be as flat as some... only lightly flattened.  I am so happy these are so easy to work with, and thought it was perfect for the horseshoe image; an Antique Brad is a great accent!
