Carousel horse

Our January challenge at Patties Creations has started!
We challenge you this month, to...
"use an animal image" on your card.

What a great first challenge of the year!
Here is my card:

I used "carousel horse"
and made it into a card for my Hubby's Aunt -
who is going to be 70 next week.
With my new promarkers and spectrum noir pens, 
I experimented with the colours of the horse, and I think it seemed to work!

I used my new spellbinders die, which I cut on my bigshot,
and snipped off the top, so it replicated the saddle on the horse. 
I inked the edges of the papers and added some tiny
white dots along the blue card,
with my white sakura pen.

I finished this card about 10 mins before Hubby's aunt 
arrived to see us at our new house!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
