Today’s card is a blending of three rather different challenges.  First off, Lawnscaping is celebrating their second birthday, so their challenge is to create a birthday or celebratory card.  The CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week is to create a card that celebrates an accomplishment, and that contains at least one circle.  I think getting through another year and celebrating a birthday can be an accomplishment, don’t you?  And once I figured which stamps I wanted to use for my card, this week’s Dynamic Duos color challenge lent itself perfectly to creating a little scene.

The cow on today’s card is actually a leftover from something I was working on some time in the last year.  She’s been sitting on my desk this whole time and I thought it would be cute to pair her with the sentiment “holy cow!”  I wanted her to have a party hat to help show off the birthday theme, but I also toyed with the idea of drawing in a halo to go along with the sentiment. In the end the party hat by itself won out.  The circle element for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge is the sun, punched from a scrap of designer paper, with narrow scraps added for rays.  The scrap of floral designer paper made a great meadow for the cow.


I continued the birthday theme inside the card.  I normally don’t put sentiments inside the cards I make for Operation Write Home.  So I put this one up higher than I typically would in a card for my own use, to maximize the amount of writing space for the hero who chooses to send this card to someone.
