Green Acres

Hi!
Well who would have thought that such a simple looking card could have caused such grief! My favorite part was coloring the image. Just cant get enough of these funky cows. They're such fun to color. But when the pencils were put away,  it all went downhill . I lost count of how many background changes, sketch changes, border changes this took but my table became a battleground. (as you will see later). Anyway! Its done! Side view below:


Close up of the image:

And the button flower:

My recipe is:
Papers: mainly DCWV  "recycled pack"
Image: Bugaboo
Colors: Prismacolor pencils, Distress Ink, Vinatage Photo and Antique Linen
Ribbon: Offray
Buttons: from stash
3D sticky pads: Recollections
Punches: Martha Stewart

And on to the battleground!



Is it not insane the mess you can create with one lousy card?!
Ah well. It was fun. :-)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations:  Anything Goes
Cupcake Challenge: Distressing
Totally Papercrafts: Movie inspiration  " Green Acres"
Incy Wincy: Summer Fun
Bee Crafty:  All about the image

Well I think I'm done for the night....thanks for looking and thanks for all your sweet comments that never fail to make my day. :-)
