Clear Dollar Stamps Challenge- PURPLE

Purple, it's not a hard color, I use purple a lot, heck I was wearing a purple wool sweater....until you HAVE to make a card using it! I decided to try the Clear Dollar stamps challenge thinking it would be pretty easy. I was wrong! Here is my entry for the challenge. Since I can't resist Charlie Horse or come to think of it, almost any horse stamp so I knew it would be one of those in my collection. Then what shade, what, if any designer paper.... I chose this paper from the DCWP Kids pack. I colored old Charlie with my copics the color of my horse Moose. I used a silver pen to get his shoes a shiny silver color. The star eyelets holes on the top are covered with purple rhinestones (had to keep that purple color going). I stamped the greeting in purple ink and it is mounted in a SU frame and stuck on with lime green grossgrain ribbon.
At this point, I am thinking this could end up being the graduation card for DD's college graduation in May.

Hi Betty, had to comment on your cute charlie horse. Aren't these horsey stamps so fun to color? I gotta check out your blog to see what else you're up to.

This is cute! I like how you took the star theme and that adorable paper and went from there... I also like how the green ribbon really contrasts but yet coordinates with the purple. so cute how you colored Charlie!
