I used the following supplies:
 Western Words Trio 3013

I am so in love with this design today .Isn't this stamped horse a beauty?Our very own Jacqueline Hill from our design team designed this beauty.

I used a khaki piece of card stock and stamped the image twice.I embossed the bottom layer and fussy cut the top layer. I colored with Copics and pop dotted the layers

The bottom layer was embossed with stars and matted with a black patterned designer paper.All of these papers are from 7 Gypsies.

I used a piece of natural twine and it looked great, I went to make dinner and came back to take a picture, and my cat had taken off with the card.The twine looks like a nest

Thanks for stopping in hope you play along with us this week.
