A Mysterious Little Pony!

I am part of a group of swappers on SCS that conduct a Mystery Image Swap.  Every other month, we receive 3 cards from the previous swap round, and the images to use from the next round's hostess (hence the mystery).  

This round was hosted by our wonderful Kate, and she chose to use SU's Pony Party image. Well, let me tell you, this brought back some memories from when my daughter (now 29-gasp!) was little!  But I admit to being a little intimidated by the image.  Knowing that Kate has a young daughter, I set about to make cards that she may like to give away to her friends.  Here is what I came up with:



What little girl's pony would be without a little sparkle on it's mane and tail, right?  And, just in case, I added some to her hooves.  A proper pedicure for her to show off!

Kate, it sure stretched me, working with this image, and that's the fun of these types of swaps.  Thank you for choosing this image!  I can hardly wait to see the cards made by others and the images for our next round when my return packet arrives!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Heavens this is just gorgeous! I do not think she will give it away- she will want to keep it - on her dresser- with her other cherished items- this one made by G-ma!!!

I absolutely love all of the layers and your easel card! Your pony is colored just like the ponies my younger sister had when she was little. Very cute!!
