Blog Candy Winner and A Card

Thank you for all the Birthday wishes.  I had to laugh at some of you with your Happy 29th.  And I would be reluctant to guess someones age based on a photo too.  But just to let you in on the answer - I am now 64.
And the winner, drawn randomly is Julie Odil.
 Now how about a card?  Every once in a while I truly love the card I have created.  That happened this time.  It is for my granddaughter who is horse crazy.  Doodle Pantry has so many western images and papers. I used three sets for this card.

The sheriff star and horse shoe paper is from the set "Barbed Wire" and the strip of black, brown, and pink horses is from the set "Saddle Up Color".  For the circle of barbed wire from the set "Barbed Wire Accents", I sponged Tim Holz Distress Ink on the circle after cutting it out with a Spellbinders circle die.
Laurie has images of horses in some of her sets but I have already used those for previous birthday cards so I used two images from an Inkadinkado set, fussy cutting the line of horses and attaching to a burlap ribbon.

 Have a wonderful weekend.
