"These Are Me Salad Days, Slowly Being Eaten Away..."

Over to this weeks challenge at I ProMarkers, it is Challenge #127 Gold Silver or Bronze. You can use one or all three, the choice is yours. As you can see, I have chosen to use gold (such a shame it didn't photograph very well, even though I used natural light) and our sponsor Digi Doodle Shop have given us a few really nice images to work with. I have used The Jockey - Lucky#7 (available here) and a Spellbinder die which I have cut in half and used it to bracket my finished image. Papers are from my stash and I used a little spotted ribbon around a pice of layered Basic Grey 6x6 cardstock. This is the first time I have ever coloured a horse and I think I have done a decent job, I'm not really a horse lover so it was hard to try and work out where all it's muscles would be.
Hope you like it and I will be back soon with more delightful cards for you to peruse,
take care,
hugs 'n stuff
