More new samples!...

Good afternoon, dear Blogging buddies! I am on sample overload, making cards to share for the launch of my next papercraft disc, Animal Antics... the gallery is completed and production has begun, so I get a few days to play! The first card I have to share is one using the cow image...
...I printed off one of the image toppers and added some grass with my Pro/Flexmarkers in various shades of green.  I then cut around the muzzle of the cow with a craft knife so that I could slide the fence die cut underneath and have him looking over the fence!  The fence and windmill are from a Heartfelt Creations die set called Rustic Western Elements which I picked up in the sale over at IconUK with a tenner off!  I cut the fence from brown cardstock, embossed and then inked in the die with Vintage Photo DI.  The windmill was cut from grey cardstock and inked with Weathered Wood DI...
...I used the Bird chevron paper for the background and added some clouds from embellishment sheet 2 (I have an obsession with clouds at the moment and would put them on every project if I could!) The sentiment is from the cow set and reads, 'It's your Birthday...party 'til the cows come home!'  I finished the inside with the plain 5x7 insert from the Horse set and typed in 'Many Happy Returns'.
Hope you like my bovine creation...I really like this card, it makes me smile....and it has clouds on it too! Might have to make another one with the horse looking over the fence?! Have a wonderful afternoon and I'll be back tomorrow with another sample share!
Hugs,
