Bendy Card

Hello all, it has been awhile! And I'll have a Royal Birthday post for you soon! But first a card :)
I have seen some beautiful bendy cards out there and knew I wanted to try one. But I wanted to create just the right scene. Well when we got invited to a 7 year-old girl's birthday party that rides horses, I knew just what bendy card scene to create.
I used the digi stamp Gretchen with Jolly from Your Next Stamp. The rope frame is a Silhouette file, so is the bendy card. I cut out the bendy card pieces from kraft cardstock first and then cut the same size pieces of my dp's and glued them onto the kraft paper. The ducks and Happy Birthday ribbon are Silhouette cut files and I personalized the ribbon with her name. The cat is a freebie at From the Heart Stamps. All images colored with Prismacolor pencils and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

She loved her card and said she was keeping it forever and asked her Mom a million and one questions about how I made it. I love little girls!
I'd like to share my card at:

This is so sweet, Barb! What a compliment that the little one loved it so much!! I love the summer-y look to your card. I miss summer already. In fact, we even had a bit of snow yesterday. (I'm glad it at least held off until November...)

I do hope that all is well with you and that your sweet girls had a fabulous and fun time on Halloween.
