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.
