Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Cows

Happy Wednesday and welcome to our weekly Cooking With Cricut challenge!  In honor of  National Dairy Month we're giving a nod to the cows!  The challenge was to include a cow and/or only use black and white with a small amount of one other color on our project.

I chose to use a cow on my project, which freed me up to use more colors.  Unless otherwise noted, all of the papers came from my scrap stash.  Here is the recipe:

Card base measures 4 1/2" tall x 6 1/2" wide is plain white card stock.

The mat is a blue and white marbled/ parchment-looking paper that I've had for forever.  It measures 4" tall x 6" wide.  The inside mat is the same dimensions; the sentiment and graphics were computer-generated.

Cartridges used --

Paper Doll Dress Up - grass cut at 1 1/4" tall and halo cut at 3/4" tall.
Create-A-Critter - cow cut at 3 1/4" tall.

Pooh Font - Holy Cow cut at 1" tall.

A little bit of chalk and some pen doodling finished off this birthday card.

Now mooooove along and hop on over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the rest of the Design Team has whipped up!  We'd love it if you'd join our udderly fantastic tribute to the cow and link up your bovine creation -- you could be this week's Top Chef!
