Horse Birthday - Addicted to Stamps #118

This is the first time I have posted with Addicted to Stamps Challenge , whose theme this week is to make a Masculine card.
I had made some cards with a horse theme for a client who wanted a horse card for a friend of her's who was having a birthday soon.
This is one of the cards:

Stamps: Horse (Inkadinkadoo stamps), Guy Greetings
Inks: Black Memento, Soft Suede, Watercolor pencils
Papers: Soft Suede , Very Vanilla, SU DSP (retired), Whisper White
Accessories: Blender pen, Oval framelits, Apothecary Accents framelits, Paper pricking tool and template, 1 1/4" Burlap ribbon notched at one end, Early Espresso/Whisper White Baker's twine, dimensionals, glue dots

The image was stamped with Black Memento ink, and coloured with watercolor pencils, then blended with a blender pen.  It was die cut with the Ovals framelit and mounted on a Soft Suede framelit which was die cut using the Apothecary die.  This die piece was pierced around the edges using a template and paper piercer.

The base card is Soft Suede, layered with Very Vanilla, and then DSP (retired).

A piece of Burlap ribbon was adhered to the front using double sided tape.  One end was notched and extended slightly over the card edge.

The Apothecary image piece was adhered to the front using dimensionals, and a bow made with Early Espresso/white Baker twine was attached to the left side of the image using a glue dot.
The sentiment was stamped with Black Memento on Whisper White cardstock and matted with Soft Suede.  It was attached to the bottom of the apothecary die using dimensionals.

All paper edges were sponged with Soft Suede ink.
