Happy Dance

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a birthday card featuring the Prancing Pony die from the new Circus release.  These dies are so much fun.  I love using them with bright and cheerful paper!

To begin I chose a patterned paper so I could get my color palette.  I cut an A2 panel from pink, a polka dot panel 3 3/4 x 5 inches and a white oval using the second largest of the Nested Stitched Eyelet Oval dies.

I used a corner rounder punch to round the corners on the polka dot panel.

Then I centered everything and glued them together.

Next I cut my horse from two shades of gray cardstock and the accessories from white cardstock which I colored with Copic markers to match the background paper.

I assembled the drum and pony separately but glued the pony to the drum before adhering them to the oval.  I wanted the pony to be centered and that made the drum off center.

For my sentiment and banners I cut three strips 3/4 x (approximately) 6 inches.  I stamped my sentiment on the white strip. 

I fishtailed the ends of the two patterned strip and laid them at angles under the pony. I trimmed the excess on the left with scissors.  For my sentiment I trimmed it to 4 1/4 inches across and used foam tape to adhere it to the card front.

For a little bit extra I added some glitter enamel dots to the area under the horse and the banner.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  I think it would make a darling card for a little girl who loves ponies!  Be sure to visit the online store where the Circus dies are on sale for a limited time!
