Western/Feminine Birthday Card

I made this card for a friend that wanted something a little western but feminine for his sister's birthday.  I tried to do a Zindorf technique.  This is the link of the card I cased .  I did the image sooooo long ago that I'm not sure what colors I used, but I know they are all SU and I think they are Black, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Rose Red, Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Night of Navy.  I sponged the sky first then stamped the horse image which is Inkadinkado filled in with Black, the trees are SU Lovely as a Tree and the ground is sponged with black.  The papers are generic, the brown was run through the Cuttlebug Moroccan folder, the yellow was punched with an EK punch.  The bolo tie is a piece of rawhide folded over.  I used a piece of jewelry wire to tie it tight together.  The lace bow was white, but I used Tim Holtz's Antique Linen Distress Ink to color it and an SU brad in the center.  The flower charm was made with Shrink It.  It's the Texas state flower, the bluebonnet, which is where his sister lives.  The label is SB covered in copper colored embossing powder and an SU Happy Birthday stamp in the center.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
