Shape up!

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Shaped Card.  Come share your interpretation of this theme and don't forget the die cut!

I decided to go with an oval for my card...I know, not much 'out of the box' thinking here, but I wanted to go with a shape where I could use this fun horseshoe frame from Cricut's Bless This Farm Cartridge/Cricut Access.

Now, you might think no horse in his right mind would stand long enough for all those braids/plaits, well,,,,a picture is worth a thousand words!  Check out my mini Charlie with one of his favorite girls who loved pampering him when she was little!  Just goes to show, the right little girl can play "spa day" with her bestie!  hahaha
