My Pony and Me

When I saw the inspiration photo for the current challenge over on Passion for Promarkers, the colours instantly reminded me of my lush new Papermania Lucy Cromwell papers, I just can't get enough of them at the moment.
The stamp is the first Lili of the Valley stamp I ever bought and remains my favourite to this day.  I was a horse mad teenager (and adult!), but I haven't ridden for several years now due to health problems, but  my eye still goes to anything horsey.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers, highlighting the pony's eye and the apples with Anita's 3D Gloss.  I then went round the edges of the topper with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.
The die cut sentiment is from the Lucy Cromwell collector's pack, the organza flower is Docrafts and the other flowers were made with my Woodware punch.
I've finished off with some ribbons, a bow and some gems.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
  Sweet Sketch - #154 - sketch and colour combo
Passion For Promarkers - #149 - inspiration photo, I went with the colours and added some ribbon
I Love Promarkers - #117 - anything goes
Delightful Challenges - add ribbon
Moving Along With The Times - keep it real
Ooh, La, La - #105 - ribbon or twine
