Corrosive Challenge Goes Non-Traditional

Ok. Ok. So red & white is pretty traditional for Christmas. But is a horse? I don't think so LOL. I made this card for my former co-worker who is a rider. I love how his snout (is it called a snout on a horse?) hangs out over the circle, like he's looking through a window at you. The horse image & the Santa hat are both from Doodle Pantry. Laurie recently released a set called Santa Accessories to help you dress up some of her characters for Christmas. The hat wasn't really intended for the horse, but it works! I did have to cover one ear, but I figure, if you get a hat on a horse, it's probably going to cover an ear anyhow. I also added some Liquid Applique to the hat to give it a nice dimensional look. 

Doodle Pantry is this month's sponsor over at Corrosive Challenge. Come play along with your non-traditional Christmas card and you might just win some Doodle Pantry goodies for yourself!
