First Rocker Card - It's a Boy!

Hello Crafty family and friends,

It's been a long week; but I was able to "squeeze" out a card for a co-worker.  Have you ever found yourself boxed into a particular style of card-making?  Well, I've determined that my style is usually CAS - clean and simple.  However, for this project, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try something simple, but differnt.  I found a great website - Beccy's Place - that has instructions for all sorts of cards... as she puts it "from A to Z"!  LOL.  I also decided to use my Cameo to cut a rocking horse for the card.  The end result...

Patterned Paper - Cloud 9 Design
Rocking Horse - Silhouette Cut
Label - Nestabilities Labels 18

And here's the accompanying basket:
