There She Goes Challenge #160 - Circles

Moo! Neigh! Baaa! Oink! Moo! 

Haha!! Did that get your attention? I'm in a good mood because I LOVE this card that I am sharing. That seldom happens. I don't always LOVE my cards, but I LOVE this one. :)

I'm playing along with this week's There She Goes Challenge #160. Our challenge is brought to us this week by our Trendsetter of the Week, Debby! She is challenging us to use circles on our card or project in any way you see fit. From circle cards, buttons, and brads, just use circles in any way you can. 

I made this card for my grandfather for Father's Day. He has a barn and a herd of cows and grows veggies, so I know he'll love this! 

I used the Oh Crop stamp set. I love this set like cows love grass. I think it's my favorite. :) I used Freshly Made Sketches #39 for the layout. 

The sentiment that I used was computer-generated. I wanted to use the "whole herd" part, but the sentiment that came with the stamp set said "birthday wishes from the whole herd." I typed up "father's day wishes from the whole herd" and printed it directly onto the Kraft cardstock. Then I embossed the cardstock with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. 

I colored the images with Copic markers and masked the barn so I could sponge the sky. The patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection. I fussy cut the cow and popped him up with some foam tape. I finished my card off with two red rhinestones. I have lots of circles going on in this card for the TSG challenge - even the spots on the cow! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have to run and get things ready for our Father's Day family get-together later this afternoon! I made Lemon Ice Box Cake and Ultimate Baked Beans. Yum! Bye y'all! :)
