Whimsy Carousel Horse Release Party


Welcome to the
Whimsy Carousel Horse Release Party!
Hopefully you arrived here from Maddy's blog but if not you might want to start the Party at the beginning at Crissy's blog. 
You will need to leave a comment at all the DT's blogs as a number of them have surprise blog candy including the main prizes, 2 peeps will win both sets of Carousel Horses cleverly illustrated by our super-talented artist Crissy Armstrong!

I created a little gift set, a card, an insertable bookmark and an envelope. 
I used the gorgeous 'Proud to Be' stamp for my card.  It comes with sentiments and accessories such as the leaf stamp I used on the envelope here.
It comes with a July 4th sentiment and was designed to be such but I thought it would be fun to show a different side of him.  I think he works just as well in other colours!
The ticket stamps on the front are also part of this release, they are a set of 5 tickets plus extra insertable sentiments.  Love them!!! they were designed by our own very clever Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs.  I also used one of Ann's freebie sentiments that she gives away on her blog from time to time for the book mark.

I used my new Martha Stewart Scoreboard to make my first envelope and was so thrilled with how it came out!  It makes envelope making so easy!  I lined it with the same fabby DP ~ Basic Grey 'Capella', so love these papers, only just got them this week!
with all this going on nearly forgot to let you know the challenges I created this card for
The sketch was from Friday Sketchers
Saturday challenge ~ metal (my brads)
Stampin' for the weekend ~ card for a male
Paperplay ~ brown and (another colour)

Now to continue the party hop on over to
 Crystal's  blog
