Oh Happy Day - Mooooo!!!

Hi everyone, hope you are all happy and well. I have had a couple of days off work so am hoping to do two cards (three if I'm really lucky). My first one is using the sketch at Friday Sketchers and is shown below. As you can see I have turned it on its side.

The cow and grass is from the Clear Magic "Farmyard Animals" set and the bee is from the Clear Magic "Lazy Days" set. The image is coloured with watercolour crayons and Sakura stardust pens (on the bee and bell), there is also some glitter on the bees wings but it has not shown up in the picture.

The flower is three punched (Woodware punches) flower shapes on top of each other and shaped. There is one of Anitas gems on top. The tag was from another set of clear stamps but I do not know who by - sorry. I have put gold glitter glue on the dots and chalked around the edge with yellow chalk as I did on the main image.

The whole thing is mounted on Black Magic Core'dinations cardstock - "Hocus Pocus" - and torn around the edge to let the yellow core show through - more distressing!! The ribbon is again from Anita. The dotty paper is from Summer Driggs and is called "Fangs for the Memories".

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Cute Card Thursday - Black and Yellow,

Paperplay Challenges - Spotty things,

Saturday Challenge - Animal Antics,

The Pink Elephant Challenge - Dots, punch and tag and finally,

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Cute as a Bug

Funny really I wasn't enjoying this card until the end when it all came together.

Please let me know what you think, your comments are what makes this all wothwhile.

Hi Ali,
Aaahhh, this is so cute. What a lovely image - and you can see the glitter on the wings - just. It's a pity camera's can't always pick up the little things isn't it? Lovely colouring too.
