I decided to look through my Cricut Cartridge's and I found Create A Critter and on Page 59 in the hand book there was a HORSE, YAY, found my starting point. The next thing I did was grab my Gypsy and size the horse and hide the marks that I didn't not want the Cricut to cut, I guess I have herd people call those marks, "Tick Marks".
Found a stripped pink paper from a Studio G 6x6 paper pad that I had recently purchased from Micheals and also used some Recollection Floral Embellishment's that Micheals had on clearance a very long time ago and made a nice embellishment to go on top of the bandanna. The pearl is a light pink and also from the Recollections brand.
I used scraps of Recollection paper for my horse and words, they were cut at 2.5 inches. My poor Cricut mat is getting less sticky and I cant part to open a new one up so I have been using some old Washi tape that I had a double of to tape my paper to my mat, Hey it works so why not.
The Twine is not really Twine, I guess this product is called Floss and its from Sew Easy and in the color of Pine cone.
I used Scriblles 3D paint in Shiny Black for the hooves and eyes and as you can see by the picture i smeared it at the very end, ERRRRR. Redo and Re cut, such is life.
The inside is a dollar stamp that just say "Live it up its your Birthday".

|A little tip, I put some adhesive on the ends and that way I don't was as much wrapping it around the card and then enforce with some Washi Tape that I have a double of or that I don't care for.|
|EEK, I always smear, well at least 75% of the time.|
