Alphabet Challenge - C is for Cow

Good Morning Everyone.  

So today is my first post after being invited to join the design team at the Alphabet Challenge blog.

  Im looking forward to joining in as we follow the alphabet as the theme.  Today its

C for COWS

Ironically even though my family are Dairy Farmers im very limited on Cow crafting items.  Luckily i had just aquired a set of stamps by the card hut called farmers dilemma which had this raging bull so decided to use him to make a card for a male. 

I first stamped the bull and the sentiment and lightly coloured with inktense pencils and die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  I then die cut a rectangle from rusty coloured paper and matted both onto black cardstock.  I then wrapped with brown and black cotton cord. 

A5 black cardstock base, layered with a wood panel effect paper, the paper has pastel shades of pinks, blues and greens so picks up on the colours in used in the topper, i doodled a stitched border around the outside edge.   I threaded brass buttons with green twine and attached. 

Close up of the image.

Items Used:
TheCard Hut stamps  - Farmer's Dilemma
Derwent Inktense pencils
Double stitched rectangle dies
Papermania Mr Smiths Workshop papers
