Cream Coloured Ponies and Crisp Apple Strudels

OK, so there is no strudel image on this card but it worked as a fun title! This is another entry for My Favourite Things challenge on the Flourishes blog. Be inspired by the song, ‘My Favourite Things’ from the Sound of Music. My first thought was ‘girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes’, this was my second. (I typed up that post already intending to post it first but my picture sucked so I am going to have to re-take it.) I don’t see any ‘one entry only’ rule so I am entering two! I had a brand new horse stamp that has been waiting to be used. This is also for the latest SCS Sketch Challenge SC253 and for Clear Dollar Stamps “Give me 5” challenge to use 5 of something on your card. Mine uses 5 colours, dark brown, medium brown, light yellow, blue and ivory; the 5 brads at the bottom also qualify! I was worried that 5 colours might be too easy, especially since they were already in the DP!

Here is a TIP for you. The ribbon I used looks like it is 2” wide right? It is actually two strips 1” wide each but you can’t tell because the middle is covered. Instead of the triangles, another ribbon layered over the middle also works well. I have to tell you, it is really hard to colour a cream-coloured pony! I think he still looks creamy. What do you think??

Enjoy, Rebecca
