Inspired by the first horse that I ever rode, Let It Ride, brings to life a memory that I will always cherish.  I had always seen my uncle ride this beautiful horse.  Then one day, it was my turn to get up on this beautiful creature.  Trigger was so beautiful and calm, but having never been on a horse before, my youthful imagination envisioned him just wanting to "go for it" and run wild!  Thankfully, while I was riding him, he never did!

The Mossy Meadow cardbase is inspired by the scent of the cedar pines that surrounded the family farm.  The embossed script on the Crumb Cake layer represents the script handwriting of my dad and uncle thus encouraging me to strive for a penmanship that I am blessed to have achieved.  The torn edge of the stamped Whisper White layer is the spirit of Trigger running free in the fields of heaven.  The white heat embossed sentiment on Mossy Meadow compliments the script embossed layer.

The pines were stamped several times across the tree line in Mossy Meadow.  The skyline was lightly colored with Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry watercolor pencils and blended with a Blender Pen for the sunrise of a new day.  The resemblance of Trigger was stamped off with Early Expresso onto a scrap piece of Whisper White, shaded with a Bronze Stampin' Blends Marker and fussy cut with paper snips before being adhered to the card front with liquid glue.  The grass beneath her hooves was stamped in Mossy Meadow.  The Braided Linen Trim was looped, tied and cut to resemble the rope reins that my uncle entrusted gentle Trigger with when trotting with new riders.

The inside Whisper White layer along with the envelope was stamped to compliment the card front.  There is nothing like leaving plenty of room to write to the recipient so an extra insert is always easy to make and adhere if needed!
