Holy Cow I created another card!

Hello all my crafty friends. I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I've been playing in my craft room today along with doing laundry. Oh yay the laundry... oh well. :)

I made a birthday card for two challenges today and I am so pleased with how this turned out. I've seen this cow with this stamp before but couldn't resist making my own version.

I absolutely love my SU Top Note Die and so I tend to use it often. This is one of my favorite things for the Crafty Catz challenge. My other favorite thing is to use sentiment stamps. I adore them and I love giving cheesy cards to friends and family. I know you can't resist smiling when you get a card with a punny sentiment even if there is an eye roll added along with it. :)


Challenges:
Crafty Catz - Favorite Things
Frosted Designs - Brads or eyelets

What I used:
Create a Critter Cart: Cow cut at 3" from Recollections cardstock

Stamps:
Pink by Design: Party till the cows come home from Take the cake stamp set
The Paper Studio: Curly design around edge of card from Cupcakes stamp set
Happy Birthday used on the inside of card came from Walmart back in 1996. Wow is that old or what!

Queen & Co black pearls used for the cow eyes
Sizzix SU Top Note Die used on Making Memories Water Color Collection Ice Blue cardstock
SU Basic Black ink
Zig Pen and White gelly pen used for detailing on the cow and Top Note Die
Black Brad from my stash
Background carstock from S.E.I. Morocco 12x12 paper pad
Foam tape used on Cow and tag
