Happy B-Day Horseshoe Card

I just finished making a birthday card for my niece who turns eleven years old this coming weekend.  I can't believe how fast she is growing up.  She lives on a hobby farm and adores horses so I had to include something relating to horses on her card.  I used the cute horseshoe from the Grandpa's Organic Farm SVG Collection by SVGCuts to create the "U" for the "happy birthday to you" sentiment on the card. 

Other materials used:
  • I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot to cut the Happy Birthday caption from the Birthday Dinos SVG Collection by SVGCuts and the Horseshoe listed above.
  • #2 used for the sentiment is a glittery sticker by Making Memories (used a paper punch for the circle)
  • I used my Sizzix Texture Boutique and the Stampin' Up! Elegant Lines embossing folder to create the texture for the card background.  I added distress ink to highlight the texture.
  • Used glitter paper, skittles, and ric-rac ribbon to embellish
Thanks for stopping by!
