Born Free

This card was made for three challenges.  Most importantly for the Tuesday Teaparty Challenge, this card will be heading off to hopefully cheer up the daughter of Cathy (Mutnik), a fellow Tea Partier.  Her daughter was thrown from a horse and is undergoing some pretty serious and intense treatment for her injuries.  It is also being done for the CAS Challenge on SCS which was a sketch, and for the Technique Challenge on SCS of using patchwork (with leftovers).  This piece of cardboard has been sitting on the stampcave table, waiting to be useful......and today was that day.  I added the rose to bring some femininity to the western/horse theme.

All images and sentiments come from an older set by Mark's Finest Papers.

Very pretty, Joanne. Gosh, I've been out of the loop a bit and didn't know about Cathy's daughter. Your card is sure to give her a lift.
