Mary Had A Little Lamb or Other Farm Animals

Challenge # 268 at Shopping Our Stash is Mary had a Little Lamb ~~ use farm animals, and this really great challenge comes to you from the one and only Chris.....who thinks up the wildest challenges.  I have very few (3) farm stamps, two which would have taken me  some time to find so I went with the only other "farm" stamp from Stampendous stamps called Filly Sketch. I even had a perfect new to me technique I was going to try until I figured out I had no clear embossing powder with me.  Here is my farm animal card......


I wanted to make it a bit more feminine than the last time I used this stamp and went with the blue layer, buttons and butterflies on the script pattered paper.  I popped the image up on some dots from the $$ store and they really elevated the image but are very spongy so should flatten out for mailing.

Since this could be used as a thinking of you, get well or birthday card I have the inside finished with the exception of the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting today and head over to the SOS blog and check out the farm animal projects that the design team have made.
