A horse of course!

Great fun to use older products in new ways. Horses have always held a certain amount of fascination with me. I've rarely been on one, but I have always appreciated and been affected by their presence. This is a difficult feeling to create on a card. Enter iridescent ice embossing powder! It has a wonderful shimmer to it giving the horse an ethereal quality. In order to ensure the horse would be visible, I added pink pirouette ink to the stamp after adding versamark. The horse sparkles quite a bit in real life.

Stamps: horse frontier, morning meadow (sentiment)
Ink: pink pirouette, versamark, iridescent ice and gold embossing powder
Paper: pear pizzazz, whisper white, cherry cobbler textured paper (in new holiday catalogue), Stampin' Up! d.s.p. (retired)
Other: Ovals Collection layering dies, decorative label punch (punch twice around sentiment), cherry cobbler candy dots, ticket corner punch (retired), generic sparkly ribbon
