It's Saturday, May 4, 2013 and today is the Kentucky Derby. I used today's horse racing event as my inspiration for the Thursday Ways To Use It challenge. I honestly don't know much about the Kentucky Derby, other than what I read briefly to prepare for the challenge. I do know that one of my cousins is at Churchill Downs today with her husband and a gorgeous hat! I'm a bit out of touch with her since her hubby swept her off her feet many moons ago and has kept her on the East Coast. I think his family is big into horse racing.
Back to my card! For my challenge this week, I asked crafters to create a card with a horse on it. I grabbed this beauty from a Mark's Finest Papers set called Wild Horses. I sponged some misty mountains behind my horse and let her run! I added some interest with some patterned paper and finished it off with a couple of brads, a sentiment and rounded corners.
I wish you a lovely Saturday afternoon. We have a warm and sunny day and I plan to enjoy it a bit!
Thanks for stopping by!
