To finish the card I added some color and texture around the outside with my sponge daubers and some Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the greeting and balloon on my card and added some epoxy stickers that had been colored with my Blendabilities. I didn't like the look of the balloon with the shiny epoxy stickers so I stamped the balloon again on scrap paper, cut it out and covered it in Crystal Effects. Then it had the same shiny look and it all just coordinated better. It's a super fun card and I just love it!!!

I'm totally smitten with this fun set, From The Herd. I love all these sweet farm animals! For this card though I decided to cut them apart from the heard. I stamped the entire image, colored only the three animals I wanted with Blendabilties and cut them out. That was the most time consuming part of this card. I've said it before, I really don't mind the fussy cutting, I find it strangely comforting :) I really wanted the llama in my card, his expression just cracks me up, but in the stamped image his body isn't complete so I needed a way to include all the animals while hiding their bottoms. I thought them all peeking through circles would be cute!
