Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #53

This is the last card that I made the other day for my precious little Hannah who is turning 9 tomorrow!! Can you really comprehend where the time goes and how fast these beautiful children grow?!?! To see Esther crawling around and think that that was Hannah 8 years ago is hard to grasp!! SO with party bags still to make and some little bunting decorations I think I'm nearly ready..... oh and there's the shopping for the present this morn too and the making of the cake..... Yes I think I'm nearly ready! HE HE!!!
Here is the sketch from the wonderful Keesh over at Inkspirations Challenges site

I figured that I still had one more opportunity to make a pony card for her before the big 10!! After all she still plays with them and enjoys the stamp set so what do you think?? Is My little Ponies too "babyish" for a 9 year old??

I water coloured the pony and added some soft blue sky as the background, then with the wings I used crystal effects for the glossy look. While my sewing machine was out I had to add some stitching too!!
Have a super Friday and fabulous weekend!!

This card is lovely! Any little girl would love to get it, definitely not too young for a nine year old! I love the watercolor effect, and it came together beautifully. Happy Birthday Hannah!

Love the flower trim with the sentiment on it anchored by the felt flowers. Darling image and great use of the sketch. Thanks so much for joining us at Inkspirations this week :)
