Baby Girl Card - Couture Creations DT

My friend gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in late October so of course I had to make her a celebratory card! There is something precious about receiving a hand made card and often they come together quite quickly if you already have a set design in mind.
 Here is how I made my card, if you want to make something similar.
1/ Cut your cardstock to 6" x 8", scoring it halfway and folding to create the base.
2/ Cut a rectangle slightly smaller than 6" x 4" from CO724016. Ink the edges in a dusky pink and stick to the base cardstock.
3/ Cut a strip from CO723997 and stick in the centre of the card.
4/ Die cut the border piece CO724045 four times from white cardstock and adhere down the sides of the green strip. 
5/ Die cut the scalloped circle from CO724019.
6/ Die cut the circle from white cardstock and ink the edge with the dusky pink.
7/ Die cut the rocking horse. I used an Ultimate Crafts die but you could use the Couture Creations rocking horse  CO723518 from the Secret Treasures line if you have that. 
8/ Ink the edges of the rocking horse and cover with crackling medium. Leave this to dry for a few hours. My horse curled up during the drying stage, I put it under my embossing plates and ran it through my Big Shot a few times to flatten it out.
9/ Once dry, adhere the rocking horse to the cardstock circle with spray adhesive. Stick the circle to the scalloped circle. Place rhinestones in every second scallop and a pearl for the horses eye.
10/ Loop a ribbon as shown in the photo and stick to the card. Adhere the scalloped circle over the top using mounting foam tape.
