Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #28 - Create-A-Scene

This card was a disaster from start to finish, I couldn't get my colouring right and consequently it looks like its been coloured by a 5 year old and then when I went to put it on my card the image was waaay too big and I had to chop it down to size with my nesties, chopping this lil' fella's feet off in the process. I really don't like this card at all and it will probably end up in the bin lol! Anyhoo, on to this weeks Secret Crafter challenge which has been set by my lovely DT buddy Jill and the challenge is to CREATE A SCENE on your card. I used my magnolia pony and tree rubber stamps and coloured them in with PM's. The DP are DCWV 'Retro' and I used some brown organza ribbon, flowers and brad from my stash for embellishing. Please pop over and see my DT buddies cards, they are so much better than mine lol! TFL :)
