Howdy and Happy Birthday!

Hi!  I finally found carved out some time at my craft table today to create a birthday card for a couple of challenges.  How do my weekends without plans, get so busy???  Yikes!

I just HAD to find the time to play along at CASE Study #192, since my friend Wida is the Muse this month.  I wish that I'd the time to play along each week this month. :(

Take a look at Wida's wonderful card!
Sweet and adorable...right?  I loved Wida's use of die cuts and (of course) splatters.  So I used those elements...but I went whimsical and a bit silly.  If you knew the friend that this card will be going to, you would know why!

I'm also playing along with the color challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges.  Love the summery colors. :)
My card...

Oh my, this card took about 2 1/2 hours to make.  How is that possible?  I sure had fun with it though.  I used a variety of Stampin' Up punches, a die cut horse, a wooden arrow and an alpha cork.  Oh, and a few splatters of Heidi Swapp Teal Color Shine.
Thanks for taking a look!
