Ballet on Horseback??? NO PROBLEM!

A really REALLY long time ago... I went to the circus and saw a ballerina on a horse. "How hard could that be?" my 7 year old self thought. Fast Forward...I started riding again when I was 32 and trust me... I was just glad to STAY ON THE DARN ANIMAL... let alone do anything like this!!! This is my tribute to people who risk their necks for my enjoyment.

I made this super fun card using stamps from The Greeting Farm. I used Ballerina Anya and the horse from McSplendid Farm. I colored the horse and the ballerina with my copic markers and I of course added SHIMMERZ to them for the sparkle. I used my new nesties that I found at Paper Makeup for the pink glitter paper and the SU top note for the shape in back. I added some fun white dots with a gel pen for detail and the pretty delicate organza ribbon is another touch that really adds to the card.
Thanks for popping by and remember... if you see someone riding a horse like this and it looks easy... then they are doing it RIGHT!

That is so cute!! What a great idea! I think both of my girls would like that-one is a dancer and the other loves horses.

She's so beautiful, the horse is precious, and I love the sentiment in the bottom corner! You pay so much attention to details, and it doesn't go unnoticed!!!
