Udderly Moo-velous

Well I didn't think I'd have time to craft til Monday but I managed to sneak in one card today. I was telling you all about Bugaboo's sale (til July 31st) and well, of course I had to buy some. And then..of course I had to color some....and then, well I had to see what it would look like in a there you have it! Isn't she moovelous? Here's a close up:

and a detail of the ribbon:

I did faux stitching on this card because my daughter still has my sewing machine. She borrowed it for her quilting class and yes, I'm having withdrawel. lol My recipe is as follows:

Image: Bugaboo
Colors:Prismacolor Pencils, Distress ink (antique linen)
Ribbon: Offray, and checks, dashes and dots
Buttons: From stash
Papers: DCWV and Paper Pizazz

Hey! Do you want to see my creation in progress?

I made this card to fit the following challenges:

Fab N' Funky:  Buttons and Bows
Dutch Dare Challenge: Anything Goes
Paper Play: Anything Goes
Fussy And Fancy: Pink and Black
Really Reasonable Ribbons  black and white

That's All Folks!

Hi Dorcas! This cow is adorable. Look at the expression on her face - how cute is that!?
Great colors and your faux stiching made look very close, you would have fooled me there ;o) Love the color on the bow - so summery and bright!

Hehehe!!! I love the name. Of course the card, too. I got goosebumps (honestly!) when looking at the process. The table with materials, Fiskars tools (hey, come on, I'm from Finland and very proud of Fiskars product lines) and all bits and pieces. The freedom to use creativity is so wonderful.
