Happy Birthday Gary!

Okay so I am really excited that I am entering my first card into a few challenges!! The 25th was my dad's birthday and i started this card on the 24th but i didnt finish it until now : / i only have time in the middle of the night so it took me a while... like 3 nights straight. ughh lol but it was soo much fun and i love it!

this is the front of the card and it is 5.5" tall
barn and horse are cut from the create-a-critter cart at 5.5" and 2"
"its your day" cut from george and basic shapes with shadow blackout at 2"
"stud" cut from simply sweet with shadow at 1"
glitter on heart and glitter gel pen around words and accents

the window is cut from george at 2" once the whole rectangle and once the silhouette and i cut the cross inside by cutting out the corners.
the sun, clouds, chicks, and horse are from create-a-critter all at 1" except horse at 2"
[these little chicks were such a pain because everything was soooo small to handle]
"chicks" was cut from simply sweet at 1"
beads for the accents
"surround yourself with" was printed using kristen font
and inked around edges on the front and the bottom and the horse.

hope you like it!
