Happy Birthday

I made this card for my husband whose birthday is today. I really struggled with the coloring here. I asked my husband who is a big fan of horses and knows quite a bit about them what kind he thought this might be. He thought for a long time and then said a cross between -- and proceeded to name three different kinds of horses I'd never heard of. Oh, well. The one thing I was really pleased with -- and you'll either have to look at the smaller picture or click on the big one to see it -- was the detail I added to the tail. I unwound a piece of twine and added it to the card with some glue.
The stamp is by PSX and the paper comes from the Vintage Collection of Hot off the Press.

It's very beautiful, Louise, even if it's not a "purebred". Hope it's a Happy Day for both of you!
