Whimsy Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to my turn on the hop!  Whimsy Stamps is doing a New Release Blog Hop!  If you've been hopping, you should have come from Erin's page.  If not, please start at Crissy's blog to begin!  We have a fantabulous prize which is the purpose of the hop...Whimsy's new releases! Not to mention all of the bonus pieces :)

My card is made using "Cool Ride" the winter carousel horse from the Crissy Armstrong collection. I colored it with watercolor pencils and glitter markers.  I then went over it with glitter gel pens for sparkle.  The papers, I really don't know the brand name, but the embellies are buttons, primas, spacers, ribbon and a rhinestone.  I also used a snow marker and 3D glitter pens to make the trim on the horse's cape.

Your next stop on the hop is STACEY's blog.  Please hurry on over and keep hopping!  Have fun and good luck!

Cute Card:  Sketch
