Double-duty challenge card!

Why is it that when you have a "day off" from work, you actually still work? I only had enough time to do two cards today! Dang it! I had a conference call, which was a total waste of time, answered business emails and returned phone calls. I am totally writing down a few hours on my time sheet!!!


On to the fun stuff!! This ca-yootie patootie is for Taylor's TECC70 sketch challenge AND 365 Cards Day #95 Wacky Color challenge. I should have used a cuppie cake for Taylor's, but this little cow was already half-way-colored! The color combo for 365's had to be Pink, Orange, & Blue... yikes!


Stamps: An Udder Birthday?

Pa
per: Lilly Anna SWIC & Cardstock, Bazzill Mono-Oranges, White UltraSmooth cs

Ink:
Noir Palette

Other:
Stardust Stickles, A
udrey Embellishment Jar, Fiskers border punch, misc. sheer ribbon, Nesties


Tip of the Day: I made the felt star from one of the flowers in the Embellie Jar with just a few snips of the scissors! I'm sure I'm not the first to figure that one out, but hey... it felt like a lightbulb at the time :)


Pretty straight-forward card otherwise since I didn't have to really think about the layout OR the color combo :)

What do you think?

Very cute! Love your cow - he's colored perfectly! How do you get the blue behind the cow - do you sponge that or is that pencils and oms? It's awesome!!

Hey thanks again for helping me out - I hope I wasn't the reason you didn't get more cards done!!

Can't wait to meet you at seminar and hopefully I can meet up with you on a Thursday! Keep me posted on that!
