It's birthday cow day!

Good morning all

I have a really cute card to share with you today that I made using the cutest little Birthday Cow you ever saw - called Birthday Cow the artist is Crissy Armstrong
 and she is available from Whimsy Stamps here

and here's the inside 

I just love her cute fac as she blows out that candle on the cake!  I've kept the card fairly simple to keep the focus on the image which I've coloured using bright colours and I also added some glossy accents to the balloons and her hooves - don't think it shows up too well on the photograph - but you can see the lovely raised gloss on that pretty spotty paper!

I made it for a friend's little boy who will be one soon -He just loves bright colours so I'm sure that this is just perfect for him - who wouldn't want a happy birthday cow!!

This is what I did....
