Inspirational Post for Whimsy Stamps

I'm back with another post for Whimsy Stamps using a Birthday Cow by Crissy Armstrong which you can find it in the store here;
So I started off using Early Espresso for my base which is a 5"X 7" finished card size. I used the collection from Bo Bunny called 'Welcome Home' for the rest. I added 1 layer before cutting the blue & green paper in half to create the sky and ground. I then cut a fence using Cottage Cutz die called 'Picket Fence Border' using paper from the collection. I ran it thru a Tim Holtz embossing folder called 'Bricked & Woodgrain'. I then highlighted it using Viva Decor Inka Gold 'Bronze Gold'  which I bought at R & R Scrapbooking here in Edmonton. I printed the Birthday Cow onto shimmery white paper and colored her using my Prismacolor pencils. I then added White glitter for the cow, gold glitter for bell, flame on candle and party hat. I then added some glitter to the balloons, cupcake and the flowers for some added bling. I then cut out a tree using a Memory box die called 'Arboscello Tree' using paper from the same collection. I then added some Viva Decor Inka Gold using 'Emerald & Brown Gold' along with some green glitter. I added a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps 'Celebration Sentiments' and sponged on some Sea Crystal and Guacamole Fluid Chalk again that I bought at R & R Scrapbooking. I then added a flower that I made using a Cheery Lynn Die called 'Black Eye Susan strip' using some yellow paper which I sponged on some Pan Pastels to add some interest.
