Horsin' Around Part 2

 Happy Thursday- This post is part 2.  Part 1 was yesterday's post.  If you missed it then-check out yesterday's post.
  •  For this card -I did the same thing with the hat as the girl card. Without embossing hat...
  • For the mane on the horse I simply used some brown(Capacinno) twine and glued to the horse. (does not have to be a specific length-I used 1/2" pieces.  I then gave the horse a haircut.
  • For the stick on the horse-I did the same as the girl.
  • I embossed the ivory colored cardstock with Diamond in the Rough embossing folder and my cuttlebug. 
  • And the back brown piece was also punched using the same Stampin Up punch.
  • For the jute I honestly just made a design and glued it down.  I used Zip Dry for most of these items.
  • After jute was down I added the horse shoes also cut from the same cart. These are cut at 1 1/2 inches.
The sentiment was stamped and glued on a leftover piece of background paper and I added the copper brads.  Again this stamp is one of My Pink Stampers.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for an awesome blog hop with some super talented ladies.
