In the Farmyard with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog, today brings the beginning of my Christmas Holidays
as well as the extended Christmas Challenge at the

the theme this week has been set by our very own Wendy, the owner of the Secret Crafter Shop

(running for 2 weeks)

now I would have struggled with this one as I really do not have an image that would portray this correctly, however Stitchy Bears our fabulous sponsor
gave us an image to play with, my choice "Floral Horse" by Jeanette, at Dragons Lair Designs.

The base card is white, layered with a mid green and then a white roses embossed layer, embossing folders can be found here.  I used a woodware sentiment from the Hobby House and used Tim Holtz peeled paint distress ink to edge around the sentiment, creating a mono feel to the card.  The flowers are from many places and the ribbon and bow are Papermania's Capsule collection.

Now don't forget to pop over and see all the other Design Team Inspiration
