Christmas Horse

I can't believe how long it has been since I posted something. And that is actually how long it has been since I have crafted as well. I got so busy with school. Both of my finals were last Friday and I spent so much time studying and preparing for them. I got only one wrong on my Medical Terminology final and 100% on my Biology final! How awesome is that?!! :)
This is some wall decor I made for my dad and his wife for Christmas. They have three horses and the horse on here looks a little like one of them. It is 12"x12." I used some snowflake patterned cardstock for the base of the decor, it came from the Winter Magic Stack by DCWV. I cut the hills and sun from Country Life. I used my Gypsy to make it as large as possible. All the hills are covered with different types of white glitter, which is hard to tell unless you see it in the light. The hills are all pop-dotted. The horse and fence are also cut from Country Life at 5 3/4." I pop-dotted the fence and the horse. I used some white ink on his leg and the stripe on his nose and gave him a black pearl for the eye. The Christmas lights are from Create a Critter, cut at 1." I used some x-mas red, green and gold Stickles on the lights. The wreath around the horse's neck is from Joys of the Season. I cut it twice, once with a dark green and once in a lighter green. I use glossy accents on the berries on the wreath. The "Merry Christmas" is from Blackletter. I used my Gypsy to weld and cut the letters. I also used glossy accents on the title.

I am entering this in the Die Cuttin' Divas "Holiday Decor" challenge.
