Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Sweet Companion

Good Morning and welcome to another inspiration post from me for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I am using the gorgeous Sweet Companion image for my card and just love this gorgeous digi stamp.

I went for a purple and grey colour combo with a touch of pink for the flowers and love how it came out. I'm not very good at colouring animals yet (I do have the class form Kit and Clowder and have it all printed, but not yet found the time to start it!), but I am pleased with how the horse came out.

This card is also for
