WT480, Paper Tole - My company is still here for another week, but I just had to take the time and make a quick card. This is one of my favorite techniques. The whole cow is popped up, except the tail. The legs are also popped up the second time.
Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge Vacation or Travel. My favorite place to go is the Great North East. This farm scene reminds me of that. Plus it is where all our Grandchildren are....
I thought this image would be good for a belated birthday card. I left room to stamp I'm sorry on the front. I also thought I could stamp P.M.S. on the front and put Possible Moo-dy Syndrome on the inside. (sorry , it is the best I could come up with on such short notice) I also came across this sentiment. Don't get mad, Get Vegan !
It could be a card for kids by adding a joke to the inside.
Why was the farmer upset?
His cows were moo-dy !
What do you get if you cross an angry sheep and a moody cow?
An animal that's in a Baaaaaaaaaad Mooooooood
I'm not sure how I'm going to use it yet. Any other suggestions would be great.
Someday I will be brave and color this background. But I like leaving it black and white, keeping the focus on the main image.
We will be gone most of the day, But I will be back to comment later as well.
Thanks for looking

Cute is the word, for sure - sorry to repeat what everybody else has said! The plain background makes a great setting for the popped-up cow - as well as saving time when you're busy ;-). It's a wonderful card which doesn't look quick at all - and I like your different ideas for sentiments to use with it. Who knew a moody cow could be so versatile!!!

Wow, wow, wow...what a super card. I loved it when I saw it in the gallery, but after reading all of the cute sentiments I don't have enough compliments. I like it with the bkg in black and white and only the cow colored. Great job. into my favs.
Wow, Irene, what a unique and fun card! Love that you only colored the Moody Cow and left the bg black and white. It totally focuses your attention on the cow, your beautiful coloring and beautifully done tole. All your sentiments are super fun, too.
