There are so many things I love about this card. Let's start with that background. There is a new background stamp in the Occasions catalog called Crackle Paint. I have already used it on a couple of cards. The horse image is from a new stamp set called Let It Ride. There are three different horse images and some great sayings in this new stamp set. Another great thing about this card, it goes together quickly.
