Mystery Image ~ Pony Parade

This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS.  A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess.  This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette.  These images were sent to us by Kate, who will swap the cards and send us the next image, provided by Samantha!  I can't wait to get the swap cards back to see how everyone else used the same image.  And then we get to do it all again!!!!

 The image the Kate sent was a bit of a challenge for me, so I looked up how some creations in the gallery on SCS.  I found a couple of ideas that were birthday cards with the balloons and almost all of the cards had glitter added for sparkle on the pony.   Some of my added elements were using a Spica clear pen on the pony’s mane and tail as well a white gel pen on the balloons.  There is also a cupcake brad on the patterned paper in the inside.

I think this card turned out very cute—and I hope Kate as well as the others in the swap like it also.
