DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 30: Horses, Hats or Flowers

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful week. It's the Squirrel and the Fox time again, and this week we are asking you to make a card with either Horses, Hat or flowers, or all of them.
We got to play with some gorgeous digi stamps from an Australian company named:Make it crafty
They also have 'real' stamps as well. I just love the details of them, this gal Zoe is one talented lady. 
Head on over and check them out.

In Australia, every first Tuesday in November, in the city of Melbourne we have a horse race that seems to involve the whole country, in State of Victoria it's even a public Holiday, so hence the Horses, Hats or Flowers theme. I know of people that never even see the horses run even though they are there, it;s just one giant party, and all the girls dress up in their posh frocks, with hats and all. The rose garden is also in full bloom and is most impressive. Most people have a little bet or two, most offices tend to stop briefly to check out who won. Even those ( like myself) who isn't much interested in the whole thing....

I found these square doily on ebay UK, love them....Believe it or not the purple on the designer paper is actually the same as the background card, just didn't come out in the photo that way, what a shame.
I used some pretty blue coloured cherry blossoms and I always colour with Pro markers. As you can see the  double gate fold, folds out to reveal the centre which is doubled up to create a pocket, so to fit the large tag. Most of the embellishments are on the belli band. Hope you like it. 
Looking forward to checking out your blogs, blessings Hilde
