Joan's Challenge #5 Neutral

Good Morning Ladies,
Another round of Joan's challenges! What fun! This week is Joan's Challenge #5 Neutral
The requirements this week are as follows:
Colors-Neutral
Use a picture
Use a fancy corner or flourish
You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
You can see and enter the challenge by clicking this link http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/03/challenge-5.html
Of course my card is out of the box....I wanted to use a new die I bought at Joan's Gardens. So here is my entry....
This was a fun card to make. My photo is from an antique store. I rode and showed horses for 18 years. So when I came across this old photo with a few others I had to have it not knowing what I would do with it. This challenge gave me the perfect chance to show it off. My layers to cover the card base are grey, white texture, and black. The new die I purchased at Joan's is the Barbed Wire Fence by Frantic Stamper FRA-DIE-09122. This die is awesome. The fence posts are cut from dark bark cardstock and the barbed wire is cut from grey card stock. I cut the Galloping Stallion from Poppystamps die #996 . This die can also be purchased from Joan's Garden. The stallion is cut from the white textured stock. For my flourish I used Memory Box die Star Flourish #98681. This was also purchased from Joans Garden. I cut this flourish twice. My second cut I made into two pieces. I layered it up to make a corner. In my book horses are stars so this pulled it together for me.
Thanks for another great challenge Joan! A shout out to Terri for keeping Joans Garden alive and well!!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
