Lucky Horseshoe!

Hi Friends~ How have you all been?  I've been busy studying for another CPA exam that is coming up the end of this month....oh how I can't wait for studying to be done....although that won't be for quite some time.  As some of you may have noticed the SCACD Store was closed this past week for some maintenance....well the Store is NOW OPEN!  So I hope you have your list made from window shopping....because now you can head to the store to buy all of your goodies!  Susana has numerous NEW products and lots of items on sale so make sure you check them all out!  

Today I have a fun shaped card to share with you using some FABULOUS Wild Orchid Crafts and SCACD products!  This card also goes along with the current challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog which is to use Blue & Brown on your creations!
My mother-in-law absolutely LOVES horses so when I was planning her birthday card I wanted to incorporate the horse theme into it.  I decided that I was going to make her a Horseshoe shaped card, and I have to say I am very pleased with how it turned out.  I used gray cardstock spritzed it with Tsukineko Silver Shimmer Spray and cut out my shape and then popped it up onto black cardstock so I could get the depth of the horseshoe.  The metal accents are supposed to be the "nails" that they use to put the horseshoe onto horses hooves.  The paper is from the Prima Madeline Collection (Susana has numerous Prima pads on sales right now that you can find -->here<--.)
Sentiment is from the Verve Big Wish Set and has been accented with Copics and cut out using my SB oval and blinged with Silver Stickles.  Then the sentiment was popped up onto a SB scalloped oval.  Flower arrangement uses some beautiful WOC flowers consisting of: a 25mm Wild Rose, 25mm Rose, 15mm Roses, Gypsophilas, Silver Holly Berries, Tulips, and Pearl Stars.  Flowers have been accented with Diamond Stickles for even more bling and sparkle!
Raffia and Ribbon bow was made using my Bow Easy.  Make sure you check out the amazing assortment of colors of Raffia that WOC carries!
I carried the horse theme onto the inside of the card too!  I've used the Carousel Dreams by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamp which is a part of the Sampler Edition #5 Collection.  I LOVE the elegance of this beautiful horsey!  She was colored using Copics and accented with my pastel pencils.
 Copic Colors Used: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, BG11, BG15, BG49, G29, G21, and R21..
And one more view for dimension!  I hope that you have enjoyed this shaped card and much as my Mommy-in-law did for her birthday!

I'd also like to take a moment and to send HUGE HUGS to Susana of SCACD!  I am so honored to be a part of the SCACD DT!  Susana is a fabulous store owner and most importantly one of my bestest friends!   You Hun!!!  Make sure you head over to the SCACD Store to see all the lovely goodies that have recently made their way to the store!  Happy Shopping!

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥
