Birthday sMOOches!

I decided to try my hand at a Paper Smooches card this morning using Birthday Buddies and Chubby Chums, along with one of the SPARKS Challenge Sketches. I have to tell you a little about the inspiration for this card...his name is George and he's my 3 (soon to be 4) year old son. George.LOVES.cows! Luckily my husband and I both grew up on dairy farms and have easy access to both of our family farms, so George gets his fill of cows. In fact, we're housing two calves right now, one of which George will be showing at our county fair next month in the Little Dairymen division.

Ok, so that being said, when I looked at the sketch, I instantly saw a barn (red), silo (fawn/gray) and grass in the future of this card which also went along with one of the color combinations from the SPARK challenge: fawn, red, black and kiwi.  I added scored lines on the 'silo' and 'barn' and then added white stips to the barn door to further cement the whole 'barn' idea...following? Instead of a traditional birthday gift, I stamped the gift stamp from Santa Paws, and changed it into a bale of hay...cause, duh, cows love hay, right?!

I'm headed over to the Paper Smooches blog to link up my card for the August GD challenge and the SPARKS challenge...I've seen some awesome things over there, so you just might want to check it out, too! Last, but not least...this is my second post today, so if you're interested, just keep-a-scrollin'!
