This weeks teapot challenge is to send a card with a bucolic Minnesota scene to a woman who needs peace right now. She is recovering from an operation and I hope this brings her some serenity.
This stamp set has not yet gone digital so I stamped the image and then enlarged it 200%. I made 2 copies and cut out the cow and fence and popped them up. I used distress inks on the edges of the gingham bg and the sentiment. The sentiment is also popped up. The scene is coloured with copics.

What a great image, and a great card! Bucolic says it all, Elizabeth...the cow bell, your homey DP and the great strip of burlap - perfect country card. Peggy will adore this, thanks so much for coming to her Teaparty. Make sure to get a couple of barn cookies (one for yourself and one for your cow wink wink!). Hugz from New Jersey!

Oh so clever! LOVE the image and I would never think to enlarge a "regular" stamp, only digital! Thank you for sharing! Your coloring is fantastic!!! It really pops against the red checkered background! Really wonderful embellie with the heart and raffia bow too! Big cheesey smiles from me, Peggy will no doubt love it too!

Well of course I am going to LOVE the image, after all it is a cow! hehe Elizabeth your Down on the Farm card is awesome big time. Love how creative you were. Most of us would think to reduce and image, but you went a step further by enlarging. Well done. Love this! TFS :0)
