Mojo Monday #536


I  love creating custom birthday cards.  One of the joys of cardmaking is creating a card especially for the recipient.  Honestly, I can create a card in less time than it would take me to read through dozens in the card aisle!  I feel for those that are stuck in the card aisle trying to find the perfect card, as it rarely exists! I do custom cards by request....just need a theme or a person's likes or dislike's to create with! My card was created based on the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday-


I carried out the theme to the inside of the card as well-


I dug deep into the stash for my supplies, so don't fall too in love with those papers...chances are they are ancient!  The rope was fashioned from a piece of burlap ribbon, by removing the strands. My sentiment and horse were die cut three times and adhered together for added dimension on the card. The super cute Country Horse stamp and die set is still available to purchase in the Online Only Section.
