Party Barn

     This is for the last day of the 10th Birthday Celebration at Catch the Bug challenge where the overall theme has been "Down on the Farm."  Each day there has been a different challenge with a different theme and today Bugaboo Stamps gave away a freebie which can be used with today's photo theme (see below.)  You have until the 20th to get all your daily entries done and posted.  Here's a link to the FREEBIE.
     I used it, plus a barn from a set by Jan's Digi Stamps.  The party got so huge they had to move it outside the barn!

Here's the inspiration photo and I based my card on the sketch at Cheerful Sketches.


I also used ALL the colors from the Tic Tac Toe board at
although I muted the Sangria on the barn doors.

Colored with ProMarkers & watercolors
Sheep image is fussy cut & mounted on dimensional tape
Barn image cut with QuicKutz dies
Raffia wrapped around card front
Background dp is a scrap
Sentiment printed and hand cut.

Hi There Connie. Just thought I'd pop over and say "Hi". Your card and the whole design is really fun. I would have never thought to do what you did but it is adorable and it works so well. Love your comment about moving the party outside the barn (Too funny). The Bugaboo week definitely has been fun.
