Holy Cow Challenge

Woo hoo... I FINALLY managed to participate in one of Barb's (StampItCrazy) challenges!  Barb, does my "slacker" title get lifted now?!  :)  She is also offering up a funny cow stamp to ANYONE THAT PARTICIPATES!  Just go HERE to her blog.

I'm not totally thrilled with this card... I should have added a darker paper under the scallop edge to ground the whole card.  See the cow hide print at the top?  Yeah, it's glitter... oh yes, yes it is.  I've got glitter every-freakin'-where here at the house!  I lucked out and had Pink Stickles which matched the glitter perfectly... otherwise those dots on the scallops would NOT be there :)

Stamps:  An 'Udder Birthday
Paper:  Lilly Anna SWIC, Lilly Anna & white UltraSmooth cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo
Other:  Lilly Anna Ribbon, Copics, Essential Glue Pad, Pink Stickles, Crystal Lacquer (sunglasses), EK Success border punch, Melissa Frances glitter, and a Target thumbtack

This is the first time I've used this particular cow from that stamp set... she kinda freaks me out a little.  I just want to know:
how did she manage to stuff her big ol' udder into that teensie bikini bottom? 

I'm just sayin' :)


What do you think?
