An Udder Birthday

I actually played a challenge or two, finally! Man, life gets in the way of stamping sometimes, doesn't it?

I combined this sketch from Stuck On You Sketches:

and the farm part of the theme from Drunken Stampers (gosh, I love that name!):

and I made this:

I've had this card in my head for quite some time, believe it or not. The sentiment stamp has been out on my desk for months, and I knew I wanted to use the Paper Smooches moo-cow with it, but I needed a sketch. Today, the SOUS sketch just called to me, and I dove right in.

I know the cow's nose is pink and the twine is orange, but it is what it is. A twine remnant was in the UFO pile, so I used it. Whatever.

It's amazing how, once you have an idea, a card can come together so quickly. I like when that happens. I may go back for some more. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used but not linked below: twine, Cornish Heritage Farms sentiment, googlie eyes, A Muse Studio cloud dies.
