DYSU #41 - Use Your Scraps

It's Thursday, which means another great challenge over at Do You Stack Up? We want you to use your scraps which I am sure you all have boxes or drawers full of.  I know I have!!

Our sponsors this week are:
A Day for Daisies - $16 Gift Certificate

 Pink Cat Studio - Winner's choice of 5 digis

Just Some Lines - $15 Gift Certificate for digis

For my card this week, I am using an image of my own choice which was a freebie from Beccy's Place. Make sure you hop over to her blog, she has some great images and they are all free!! As soon as I saw the theme for this week's challenge, I knew this image would be perfect.  

I have paper pieced the little horse, shaded and highlighted with a Promarker, cut fancy borders with a Martha Stewart punch and faux stitched. To finish, I added a small button brad for the eye, some ribbon, a small bow and a stamped message. Perfect for a new baby or even baby's first birthday.

Ok - now it's time to pop over to the DYSU Challenge blog, take a look at the rest of the team's gorgeous creations and join in the fun. There are some great prizes up for grabs, top three places (with more prizes) and Guest Designer spot  - so hurry on over there!!
