Miss Muu Muu Mooved Me

Hello.
A bit of alliteration in the posting title there...LOL, but have to wait for Miss Muu Muu--am showing the card front first...

I've just finished this card.  I've made a gate fold card--haven't created one for quite a while now.



On the card front, I've featured the adorable Tilda With Magnolia Branch.  I've coloured her and the other images for this card with my Letraset Promarkers and Tria markers. 


The windows were made using the PoppyStamps Small Madison Window die.  For the ornamental design above the windows, I used a Spellbinder Fancy Tag Three die which I cut in half.




LOL, I've been surfing the internet looking for pictures of cows to get an idea of how to colour the image.  I like the look of a heifer cow so that's how I've coloured Little Miss Muu Muu.


The background scenery is the Barbed Wire Fence image which I've stamped twice after masking the cow image first.  The sentiments are computer generated.


The stamps for all the images I've used are from Magnolia's Summer Memories Collection 2012.  They are all available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Diana is also giving a 12% discount and you will also be earning a 2% Store Credit to be applied on future purchases. How cool is that!
Beside the window die I used here and other PoppyStamps dies, she also carries Memory Box and Magnolia Doohickey cutting dies.  Check them out!
