Thinking of Ty

A friend asked me to do a special card.  Her nephew, and adopted boy of 13, is undergoing especially difficult times.  He was severely burned (by overly hot bathwater) as an infant. Now he must undergo special procedures daily, for several weeks, in an effort to save his legs.  I really have no understanding of the medical aspect, but it has to do with stimulating the growth that was inhibited by the burns.  My friend says he maintains a positive attitude.  He loves horses.  I made this 5.5x8.5.  The DP is from a Costco set.  The image and leaf punch are gifts.  I added brads, twine, and his name in CB Olivia lettering.  The blue layer is embossed with distressed stripes (CB).
I do not often consider horses to be "critters" but I hope they qualify:
I rotated the sketch, and used twine:
3 brads, 2 pattern papers, 1 image
anything goes: 
For the boys:

Like Horses & this card has the Western feel going on. Recently I made a Horse card using Copper Embossing Powder.
Thanks for entering the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge "Animal Critter" theme.
