Boss's birthday

It is my manager's birthday this week and as always I have the job of making the card from all of us lot at work , I decided to make a big one since there are a few of us to sign  it
As she loves her horses I decided to include it in the theme,but that was as far as got with it .I searched the internet for free downloadable images, i needed one that would convert easily to a cut file in SCAL  .
The finished horse then sat on my desk for a few days waiting for some inspiration to help complete the look .I was watching create and craft and saw Nikky Hall demonstrating aquamarkers with her latest CD and there i was totally hooked , out came the credit card and i ordered the aquamarkers.I already have some ,but these were new exclusive colours so I just had to have them !
Not satisfied with that ,I then went to polkadoodles and ordered the CD .My cd arrived this morning so I went to polkadoodles challenge blog and decided to use their sketch to finish my card and enter it into their challenge

Gorgeous card Kate I love your horse too, I bet your boss loved it.
You had me laughing at your spending spree (this is just the sort of thing I would do).
