This card was inspired by the Paper Players challenge this week. There is a little more silver on mine than just the sentiment, but I love it!
Growing up, we had a Percheron/Arab cross mare named June. A Percheron is a draft(work) horse and they are very large! She was too :) We could fit 3 teenage girls on her back, and our feet came about 1/2 the way down her belly! She was an amazing horse that my father got when he was 13 and the horse was 3, and she was 32 years old when she died. I lived with her until I was 18 years old and she was 29, and still miss her nearly every day. We had so much fun with this horse. She loved to pull our big red sleigh, which we actually took to church one day during a snow storm! We even had bells on her harness, which I can still hear in my memories. We would also tie a toboggan to her tail (below the flesh), and she would spend hours happily pulling us around the pasture! Oh, the days before snowmobiles in every home :)
Well, I had to buy this stamp set just because of that dear old mare, and this year, I wanted to make a Christmas card remembering her, to send to my dad.
The tree is embossed in Iridescent Ice over the sentiment and the silver glimmer and foil papers highlight the main image so well!
