Blacksmith's Get Well

 Had a request for a get well card with a horse for a friend's  blacksmith and decided to go back to an old Stampin Up set called Brushstroke Horses. I discovered that my Mojo must be coming back, because I came up with all sorts of ideas for the set.  Unfortunately, my neglected yard beckens me today so the rest of the ideas will have to wait.  I embossed the horse with an embossing powder called Bavarian Bronze (no clue what brand) and colored him with chalks and copics.  The cloud effect is done with Gray Flannel Memento Ink and Silhouette cut clouds.  The image was then cut with Spellbinder's Labels Twelve and mounted on Glitter Cardstock.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the rest just from my stash.  The hat inside the card was also done on my Silhouette out of Chocolate Chip cardstock.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown SugarChallenge #38 - Get Well
Sisterhood of Crafters - Animal Antics
V's Sweet Ideas Challenge #10 - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!
