Cow's it Going??

Lucky me, I had some time to create today!
I LOVE playing along with challenges
And I love to try to fit as many challenges into one project as possible
I KNOW you probably already know that if you follow my blog at all.....
Soooo today I made this cute card!

I have wanted to try paper piecing for a while now, and this is sort of using that technique
if you look close at the boy cow's overalls you can see that is actually a piece
of old jeans I have in my craft room that I use for scraps!
There, that's a better view...
and see the cute sentiment??  Cow's it going??  like I told hubby, thats Punny...
Oh goodness, I must of had too much caffiene today!
First this cute cow pair is a stamp from la la land crafts I colored them up
using my copic and prismacolor markers
I added stitching to the denim paper behind the cute pair and backed with the
fun polk a dot paper!

Then I added the butterfly which is a stamp from Denami designs
and the buttons seemed to round out the bottom, I then slapped on a quickie flower and
voila!!!!  The background paper is kraft resist from my boyfriend Tim Holtz
so you ask how many challenges can I fit onto one page???
