Had fun creating this Oriental Year of the Horse Birthday Card with a Western Metallic look to it.

I used Tim Holtz Burlap Layering Stencil for background with Versamark and Stamp N Plus Glitzy chalk for a coppery look.  
Used a sketch which you can see below.

Used Hero Arts Small Greetings sentiment 'happy birthday' stamp. Used Mark's Finest Papers Year of the Horse stamps - Small Horse & sentiment 'Year of the Horse.'

Not sure if anyone has had this happen before. If you look at the photos below you will see that part of the small horse, near the tail to the right of the tail, did not ink up. The stamp has some stamp material missing. There's a gap or as I say a 'giddyap' (yeehaw, that's me being spontaneous) in the stamp. I received this stamp for participating in MFP Feb Oriental Swap. I have notified MFP for a replacement and they requested some photos of the problem which I emailed. I'm sure they will send me a replacement. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

Updated: 3/12 - I rcvd MFP replaced Small Horse stamp and it stamps correctly. Thank you MFP.

Added rope & tied a lasso with piece of rope to circle the word 'Year.'

Proud of my Justin cowboy hat I used it in the photographs.
