The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday "Happy Mail" ~ to make a card to cheer someone up got me thinking of a friend who's been having a hard time recently. She's only 24 and her mum died 6 months ago and she is struggling to manage the house on her own and is going to move away in September to be nearer her brothers. She is having a few problems at work as well so I thought I would send this to her. She is "cow mad" or should that be mad cow (heehee) Using the cow image means I can enter this into Daring Cardmakers where the theme is "Old MacDonald". The sketch is from Friday Sketchers, I have flipped it round a bit and the colour scheme of Brown, Cream and Red is from Colour Create Challenge. Phew think I got them all lol.
I have tried some distressing for the first time, I edged the layers with the brown promarker then attacked them with my scissors!! I have to admit I quite like the effect although it was rather strange to be trying to make my pristine edges rough lol
