You Are Simply the Best Horse

A friend of mine rescued a horse recently from a farm that had neglected their animals.  The local authorities picked up the animals and then called farms and horse owners in the area to see if someone wanted to nurse this nag back to health.  

Well, my friend Sue took up the challenge and bathed, fed and loved this horse until he was fat and happy again.  The horses name you ask - Lucky.

My card for Craft a Scene is a take on Lucky happy in his new home.  The stamps are from Heartfelt Creations and the die to cut around the horse image is from Spellbinders.

This is a tent card with the scene attached to the back portion of the card.  Lucky is free and attached to the sentiment.  You can see that the sentiment is slipped behind a portion of the fence to keep it in place.  The happy recipient of this card can move Lucky in and out of his stable.

I used PanPastels to color the background and Copics to color the barn.
