Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 121

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC121 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I just cannot get enough of these adorable cows from Green Acres!  All the little farm animals in this set are just too cute for words and they just yell at me to get them inky, haha!  I started by stamping the cows in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copic Markers.  After cutting the image out with a Labels 8 Nestabilities, I left the paper in the die and then sponged around the edges with Memento Summer Sky

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
