Cow Jumped over the Moon

     Remember that silly nursery rhyme?  If you read the post title, I know you're already saying it to yourself in your mind if not out loud!  "Hey, diddle, diddle..." :-D  Well, it seemed to apply wonderfully to this new-to-me image from QKR Stampede.  When I saw it, I decided it had to be used in the latest "Anything Goes" challenge over there which starts today.

     Any of you who have followed my blog, or even visited regularly, know my quirky sense of humor, especially when doing my DT cards for QKR Stampede.  This image is called "Cow over the Moon 18301."  The silly sentiment is my own.

     This year I'm trying to be encouraging in every possible way.  Call it the "Year of Encouragement."  I'm going to send this card to a friend who is facing her last (and most difficult) year of graduate school.  :-D


     I colored the cow and moon with my ProMarkers, then cut it into a rectangle and punched the corners with a Fiskars punch.  The background die cuts were made with dies from one of my framing sets by Spellbinders.  Those framing sets are definite favorites!  They can be layered together or even inset (as in this case) and they make a simple card look very complex.  The embossing is wonderful, too.

     I added brown grosgrain ribbon and tied a triple loop bow using my bow maker.  The sentiment was printed, fussy cut and added on top of the other layers.
