Being 'Udderly' Thankful

Thought: I saw this cute little guy a while back and thought I need to make a card out of him! He was originally made(I hope I am giving credit where it is rightfully due;)) by Dawn O
,as a topper for our SU! 1x8 bags.
I was working on an idea to go along with my Awash with Flowers class last month.  I was trying to think out of the box and thought of using the solid flower images looked like spots on a cow, so...
I started with a whisper white card and stamped the solid flower images from the Awash with Flowers set in basic black ink.  I used blush blossom,basic black,basic grey,whisper white,early espresso card stocks and basic grey from the neutrals DSP pack, for my punch art.  I took some pics of my punch art so you can see how I did my fellow:
Blush Blossom: decorative label,large oval(snout),and word window(tongue) Basic Black: Curly Label,Owl punch(eyes),Blossom Petals Builder(ears),itty bitty circle(cut in half -snout)  Early Espresso: Itty Bitty circle(eyes-white gel pen for highlights)

Whisper White:  wide oval(belly-stamp with small flowers in Awash with Flowers),large oval(words),boho blossoms(largest flower cut from corner and rounded to owl punch),2 owls both with feet cut away and 1 with the ears cut off  Basic Black: A small scrap(see throw out NOTHING!) strip layered across bottom,punched with jewelry tag punch and rounded at top for hooves
 *Note* as many know I am a paper scrap LOVER! I try to get the most out of all my paper.  To do this I used a square piece of blush blossom and punch my images from the center of this, leaving the edges so they can still layer behind the basic grey DSP.
I wanted my cow to be peeking out of the stall, and saying something 'mooovelous'!  I used the occasions alphabet and with a basic black marker changed my t's to d's.
 and what little cow does not need a bell??
I attached our mini jingle bell on my pool party bakers twine.

 Aren't I Moovelous??

Until Next Thought,
