This is a card I made for the teapot challenge for today. It's destination is to go to Mutnik's daughter, Jessica. Jessica was seriously injured in a fall while riding her horse. My prayers and thoughts are with her and her family as she recovers.
I wasn't sure where to go with the challenge, so I turned to the Color Challenge 327 as added inspiration while creating this card.
I used a horse die cut from Archivers. I used the negative cut out of a dark brown and layered in on an ivory. I then matted it on a dark olive green. I rounded the outside corners and added 3 SU hodgepodge brads.
Again, my thoughts and prayers are with Jessica for a speedy recovery!!

So glad that you came to the tea party...this is THE place to be on Tuesdays - welcome! What a perfect CAS card. The negative really does make a striking silhouette and the brads call to mind the tack room. Wonderful card, thanks so much for playing along for Jessica :)
