Hello!  Today I am sharing an artistic horse scene birthday card done in Prismacolor pencil.  I made this card for my eldest daughter.  She turned 12 this week.  My girl simply adores horses and been taking riding lessons.  So when I saw this gorgeous, detail Horse Scene rubber stamp set from Whimsy Stamps new release over at Simon Says Stamp last week, I knew it would be perfect for her birthday card!  I chose to color it in pencil rather than Copic since it much easier for me to achieve all those tiny details.  I then framed it with Taylored Expressions’ Frame in Frame Cutting Plate.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions’ Simple Strips Background.
