CCM #234 Birthdays

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is a lovely easy one, birthdays. We are happy to see any of your proects to do with birthdays, it doesn’t just have to be a card.

I did, however, go with a card as it coincided nicely with a friend’s birthday.

She is married to a beef farmer and just loves their cows, so I couldn’t resist the fabulous Katzelkraft image of the smiling cow, who looks like she is celebrating something with that cheeky grin.

This was a lovely simple design all on one layer, apart from the pink mirri mat that tones in with her udders and lips, which along with the rest of her were coloured with copics.

The sentiments are a mixture of ones from my stash….. the Smile sentiment I believe was from Crafter’s companion, the ‘it’s’ and the ‘Your Birthday’ are from Clarity.
