Holey Cow!

Hi everyone, it's the end of my weekend and I'm glad I finally got to make a card!
March is a big birthday month in our family so there's a few more to do!

I'm hoping my niece likes this image. She'll be 19 this year but she has a quirky sense of humour!

I'm linking up to a few challenges.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has a no rules theme, so anything goes!

This is one of the first times I've used a digi image so some rules would have helped!!
I coloured the image with prismacolour pencils and gamsol but the OMS made the printed ink bleed if I got too close. Same with rubbing the distress ink on the sentiment, it was ok just dabbing it on though.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge also has an anything goes theme.

Virginia's View Challenge is celebrating it's first birthday! Congratulations Virginia!
The theme this month is embossing.
March Challenge: All Things Embossed

I've used dry embossing and highlighted the texture with distress ink.

My flowers are punched from snippets of cream card, so I'm visiting the playground at

At Seize the Birthday there's a masculine toppings option, I've gone with anything goes birthday.

Cow pack digi image from Squigglefly (I think the shop has now closed); prismacolour pencils; Cuttlebug embossing folder; distress ink; Carl flower punch; Memory Box grass die;
computer generated sentiment; twine; brad; stickles.

Thanks for visiting,
enjoy the rest of your weekend, Cathy x

Ha, ha - how terrific Cathy! I clicked to look closer at the cow and almost spat my coffee out when I spotted the holes :) Such a fun image and a great sentiment to go with it. Bound to be a hit!!
