Hello! Welcome to the third day of Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's March Blog Hop!

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Lighthouses Featured March 20
Flaps My Wattles Featured March 21
Wild Horses Featured March 22
Mother's Magnolias Featured March 23

I went super simple for today's card.  I really like this horse and tried to color it to the best of my ability.  I made it the star of the show today and sponged in a scene behind it.  I tried to keep my embellishments to a minimum with a simple corner punch and a linen thread bow.  I think this will make a great masculine birthday card!

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!)
