Cows in the City

This card totally freaked DH and both teenage sons out! They are used to pretty ribbon and flowers artfully arranged! I just had this in my head from the moment I ordered Gina K.'s Down on the Farm set. It had to come to fruition, I would never have gotten anything else made if I didn't start with this one. To get the bull, I stamped the cow on acetate in StazeOn. Then glued her to Whisper White. Then I cut her udder off-VIOLA-boy cow! I also gave him glasses because I'm partial to intellectual bull myself.

I love the layout and design of this card. I love that you took really cute images and made them into such a contemporary card. You have a good sense of humor too- as per the sentiment!
