Horse of another color

I made this for High Hopes' Sunday sketch challenge #17. This circus horse is so much fun to color! The base is Only Orange and all the rest of the paper is Heidi Grace. I went a little crazy with my stack of embellies, and I CANNOT get them to stay together! You would not believe how many glue dots, large and small, I have on this thing! As much as I like the KI Memories Heartfelt, things just won't stick to it. I think I'm going to have to get out my hot glue gun. Or maybe Diamond Glaze would do it?

Oh, I am having such a bad case of the winter blahs right now!! Know any cures? February is always my hardest month-even with my birthday right in the middle of it. Tell me, do people in Tahiti have hard Februaries?

I agree ... it certainly is a difficult time of the year but if you keep making these "happy cards" rest assured you are certainly helping your audience!!

I love this card Carla - great colours. Diamond Glaze or Ranger Glossy Accents would work.:)

I love that stack of embellies! Do you have Ranger's Glossy Acents? that stuff is FANTASTIC! It will hold the felt. Winter blues are no fun. Come to Denver this weekend the sun with shine and we will do Archiver's free Make 'n Takes all weekend! :-)
