This is for the Teapot Tuesday challenge. This will be going to Mutnik's daughter who had a nasty accident on her horse. We were to have a horse and flowers.
I used two sets from SU, Wanted and Fabulous Florets. I stamped the horses on Vanilla using Lilac ink. Then I used a border punch (sorry I can't think of the name of it) on Concord and mounted my horses on top of this. I used the Fabulous Florets and Concord ink and stamped some flowers on the bottom of the card. I used some purple gingham ribbon and put a boot charm on it with white twine. I stamped the inside with one horse. I always put paper on the inside of my cards. I think the look is more finished. I also stamped the same horse on the bottom left of the envelope and on the back flap of the envie. It's a simple card but I am pleased at how it turned out. We are praying for this young lady.

Well, Silly Filly, of course, of course, you would make a wonderful horse card! Tee hee! I love this in purple...when I made mine, using the same stamp, I considered the purple too, isnt that funny? But then I felt I had to go with the teapot colors so stuck to that! I love the image in purple though and what a great, great little charm to go along with the card to Jessica! She will be tickled with this lovely little card!
You did good! Thanks so much for doing your part in Jessica's Teaparty challenge!
