Joy Clair New Release Blog Hop Day 1

Hello crafty friends!
So glad you are here and joining us for the Joy Clair Designs New Release blog hop! Get ready for two days filled with some great inspiration from some new releases at great prices and a great prize too!  If you have been following the hop, you should have come from Donna's Blog. Here is the complete hop lineup.

Now here is my project for day 1.
It is an A2, top folding card. The star of the show is this quirky and cute cow! She is just too fun! The set comes with some great additional images and sentiments.

I used the digital version and then printed out on some white paper. I used some of her spots to create the border around the mat. I then used a colored pencils to give the background mat a little bit of color. I colored the silly cow with some of my colored pencils and then added some sequins for a little extra touch.

I mounted the colored and finished mat onto a scallop stitched mat and off set them both onto my black cardstock base. Very easy to recreate and lots of fun.
