Thanks through a horse...

I have a new customer who ordered Hieroglyph Horses among other sets.  I like to make Thank You cards for my customers using a set they purchased (if I happen to have one).  I've used my Hiero Horses set so much it's beginning to show a hint of staining. But I digress...


She also ordered Winchester SWIC so I also used this product plus the matching cardstock (which is one of my favorites, too).  The little Thanks So Much is from the Thinking of You set (which used to be a Hostess set but now is available for general purchase).  I used Cognac and Noir PH inks.


I like to make my bold images different and this one is no different.  After inking I stamped off once on some un-crumpled paper before stamping on my little piece of cardstock.  Can you see the way the horse looks dappled??



I found some cool little brownish sticky-back rhinestones that just finished off the card with a touch of bling. Kathy liked the card and, so do I!!  What do you think?  This layout was also a sketch challenge on Paper Wings.  Have you checked out the gallery lately?

Don't forget our Christmas in July blog tour starting tomorrow evening! There are 15 of us taking part and I can't wait to see what the other angels have come up with!

Love the dappled look - what a cool technique - I was so glad these horses were still in the catalog. TFS.

I do like Winchester with the Hieroglyph Horses set. And you do have quite the knack for changing it up so the horse looks FUN each time!
