My Little Pony Birthday

Hey Everyone!  
I am back again :)  It's only been a couple days since my last post and I'd say that I'm making progress.  
I am so excited to share this card with you and the thought process behind the creation of this card.

I designed this card for my cousin because she was wanting to give this card to her friend.  Apparently one of her friends really likes my little pony and she asked me to design a card for her that would fit this theme.  
I didn't have a stamp that was my little pony however I had seen a stamp of a horses face and mane and I knew that it would be perfect.  
I could totally visuallize the coloured mane that I wanted to do and knew that water colouring it would give it a beautiful look.  
I had paper that was absolutely perfect to use with the image and absolutely love how it turned out.  

Here's a picture of the front of the card...

Here's a picture of the side of the card...

Here's the stamped and coloured image...

I am not sure if you are able to see it or not, but there is a ton of glitter on the horses mane and I think that this card turned out great, and definitely has the feel of My Little Pony.

I hope that my cousins friend liked the card, and that it made her birthday extra special.
