I'm on a Merry-Go-Round

I really love the different Carousel Horse sets from Doodle Pantry.  The Carousel Horse 4 was a new set in May, but I'm just finally getting around to showing the card I made. 

My goddaughter has a birthday soon and I know she will love this card.  I can't believe she is graduating from Elementary School to Middle School ~ wherever did the years go?  

I used the color version of the image~absolutely love these colors. I also used one of the papers that came with the set. 

And, the carousel horse, a die-cut from Whimsy Stamps, adds that 'finishing touch' to the inside of the card.
