A Whimsy Carousel Horse meets Stempelglede for Quixotic Paperie

I have made another card featuring Stempelglede stamps for Elaine at Quixotic Paperie. I love using Stempelglede stamps with more vintage style images and this gorgeous Crissy Armstrong carousel horse from Whimsy Stamps is just perfect with them! I have used the gorgeous sketch at Truly scrumptious challenge for my card. Papers are by Magnolia. An unusual colour scheme for me but somehow this image just screamed sugar pinks at me LOL! Think I may even save this card for my little girls birthday as I love how it turned out!

I have coloured the horse with copics and added glossy accents to the pole and balloons and stickles here and there too. I have stamped the grunge corner from the Stempelglede Grunge collection with victorian velvet distress ink. The sentiment came with the carousel horse along with some others and I have stamped the splatter stamp from the Stempelglede set around the edge of the circle.

I have used Martha Stewart daisy edge punch along the edge and added a photo holder from my stash. When you undo it the image panel opens..... reveal another sentiment from the carousel horse set contained in this gorgeous ornate circle stamp from the Stempelglede set. The small satin bow is from my stash.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! The carousel horse stamp set and the Stempelglede Grunge set are both available from Quixotic Paperie! x
