Inspiration Station Challenge #17 - Animal Antics

Hello and Happy November 1st.  Today begins a new challenge at The Inspiration Station and the inspirational photo this round is Animal Antics:

For my design team project, I had to dig deep in the stash to find something that wasn't a Cat or a Dog image.  A few years ago, I purchased a box of stamps from a Church Bizarre; there is a hodge podge of stamps and I found a Horse stamp and thought Yes!  The original packaging is long gone so I have no idea where the stamp is from but it is a gorgeous image.  (if anyone knows, please comment below).

I've created a masculine birthday card using papers from the Authentique "Manly" 6x6 paper pad and a sentiment from the Maymay Made It "From All of Us" Stamp Set.

I haven't added any bells or whistles, just some inking around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it an aged appearance.  I'm pleased with the card, now to find a Cowboy to give the card to....or a Cowgirl!

Please join us at the Inspiration Station.  Use the photo as inspiration and enter for your chance to win 3 digital images from Kinda Cute by Patricia.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
