Barnyard Animals & Butterflies

Hello, Monday!

I managed to get a few more cards made yesterday - mostly special orders but I did get a couple of challenge cards completed as well.  I'm playing along with the MFT Sketch challenge for the first time with these cute NBUS farm animals from The Whole Herd.  I had fun Copic coloring them and then punched them out and layered them on top of some MFT plaid paper.  They are so adorable especially the pig and the cow.  :)  I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Country Fair Plaid) MFT
Stamps:  (All from The Whole Herd) My Favourite Things
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punch:  (1 1/4" circle) EK Success
Makers:  (RV42, R17, Y17, E08, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37, E43, E93, C-7) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

My second card is for the Seize the Birthday Dimension challenge.  The centre of the Lil' Inker butterflies are glued down while the outside edges of the wings are popped up on foam tape.  The Altenew sentiment is popped up as well.  

That's it for today.  See you tomorrow for CASology!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay, Tip Top Taupe) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Birthday Greetings) Altenew
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Those farm critters look great punched out in circles! Which sounds like and,al cruelty, but it isn't. And a very classy butterfly card, too.

You really got a lot of dimension on the butterfly by popping up the edges. Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday!

Love both of these, especially your first card. Those barnyard animals are adorable and perfectly colored, and the sentiment is spot on.
