It's time for another fun challenge over at House of Cards.  This time we ask you to use a sketch that you can flip this way or that if you like.  Mix it up and come join us!

For my card, I immediately thought of a fence when I saw the horizontal bars on the sketch.  I tried a couple of browns but then my cow seemed very color lonely so I embossed the wood border stamp in white instead.  Let's pretend the fence was painted yesterday . . . in semi-gloss.  LOL.   I sponged a scrap of cardstock with two shades of green and diecut the grass so that the eye would be drawn back up to that adorable sentiment (remarkably easy to ink it up in two colors btw).  I finally fussy cut the cow and mounted her on foam tape.

I think this is a great card for a guy although not for mine who asked, "What the heck is that word?"  Dude, really?  No sMOOches for you!  ;-)

The Details:  Paper Smooches Chubby Chums stamps, PTI white cardstock, Bazzill cardstock (love that color green), Impression Obsession grass die, Neat and Tangled On the Strip 2 stamp, Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug, Distress Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint
