Silly Birthday Cows... I mean Cards.

I've decided to enter the first of these cards in the Paper Smooches SPARKS challence "everything goes". 
The stamps from Paper Smooches are always making me laugh out loud !

Grattis på födelsedagen = Congrats on your birthday!
And sorry about the light. I live in Sweden and it's not ever much light at this time of the year!
I have two cards for you today. I was complaining to my crafty friends that I don't know what's wrong with me, because I've been trying to come up with a serious card all week, but this is what comes out instead! Birthday cards - featuring cows! Well, I guess I needed a good laugh! Don't we all?

Heavy embossing on glossy cardstock. You can hear the soundtrack to this mooovie, right? :D
I do. I know it's just in my head, but it's there!

  1. I think they are awesome! I would make this kind of card, too, for a guy who would appreciate the silliness. They make me smile -- and isn't that the whole point? Hugs to you!

  2. These are fantastic, Elisabeth! I love them both!!

  3. It is different then regular birthday cards, i personally like this kind of stuff because regular cards can't attraction and never leave long lasting impression.

  4. That cow image is one of my favs:) LOVE it! Fab card! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes challenge!!! Can’t wait to see what you create for this week’s challenge– Vintage:)
