Let It Ride horse image with Frosted Bouquet die and the Outside The Box technique
to look somewhat like a horse in a horsebox or stable
As soon as I saw this gorgeous horse image I knew I wanted to use it with the Out Of The Box technique.  Having gone through most of my dies I decided this  label from the Frosted Bouquet framelits was the best fit.  And then the shape of it made me think of a horse box, especially since I was left with the spare timber look rectangle after cutting the frame.

I continued the timber theme with layers of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, one of which I altered with some Whisper White Craft Ink and the new Crackle Paint stamp.

The horse is coloured with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers.

Since the first card I made didn't utilise any of the amazing freebies from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, I made the card below with the gorgeous foil sheets as a feature.

Shimmer everywhere with the gorgeous (and FREE with a $90 product purchase)
Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure
The butterfly is a leftover from this card and is black heat embossed on the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet and coloured with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  

Onto the Thick Whisper White base card I've layered Basic Black, a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper with some of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet underneath it.
