Sunday Cow Card

Yesterday I had guests over who wanted to make cards with me, but sadly we ran out of time. My plan was to make this card yesterday, but I made it today instead. I was so tired yesterday, and I feel another cold coming on, so I went to bed early to try to stave it off. Pray for me that it goes away! Thanks.

So I made this card for 4 Sunday challenges:
Sentimental Sunday - Get Well
Pile it On - Use wood
Opus-Gluei - Split personalities (use bright or pastel colors)
Sweet Sunday Sketch

I was really loving this cow when I used it the other day, so I thought I'd use it again. I used the wood-grain background paper from Dakota to make it look like a barn door. That will meet the wood challenge at Pile It On. I also used the bright blue bandanna rustic-looking paper from Dakota. That was for the "bright" color challenge at Opus Gluei. I'm just loving the punny sentiments on this stamp set, so I used two of them on this card. One on the front and one on the inside.

It says, "... Hope you're feeling butter." LOL That makes me crack up every time. :)

Here is the sketch:
