A Gem of a Challenge #150 - Animals - Horse Riding Chloe

It's time for another challenge at A Gem of A Challenge and our theme is "Animals"

I decided to use two images from the Horse Riding Chloe Set and layer then and add an amusing sentiment (well I think it's funny ;) ) to tie it all together. I also thought the papers led themselves to being a little Shabby Chic and so I added chalk ink to make them all blend in together.

Challenges:
Digi Choosday - Animals
Fantastic Tuesday - Feminine (and Square)
Creative Moments - Bingo! (Die/Punch, Image, Flowers)(3 entries only)
Mod Squad - Use a Die
DRS Designs - Create a Scene (merged 2 images for this)
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner - Anything Goes (2 entries only)
Simon says Stamp - Anything Goes (5 entries only)
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Eureka Stamps - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Artistic Impressions - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes (2 entries only)



Card Recipe:
Image - Horse Riding Chloe Set
Sentiment - Printed
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Stella and Rose Mabel by My Minds Eye
Frame Die - Sizzix
Circle Die - Sizzix
Chalk Ink - Prima
Flowers - Recollections
Pearls - Inky Impressions






I must admit I do say it often but I really love how this turned out, the colors are so soft and gentle and I like how the pale blue/green tones work so well with the muted orange. I hope you liked it to and that you will come over to A Gem of A Challenge and play with us this week.
