Cow's it going?

Sweet Sunday morning my friends!

I feel like that end of the month crunch is upon me once again so please forgive the short post today, but work beckons.

So I've had the TGF McSplendid Farm set for quite a while but I haven't inked them up in ages. I decided to remedy that oversight and make this simple yet fun card using the cutie cow. This also gave me the perfect excuse to pull out the old Martha fence punch and put it to use as well. ;)
At that point I thought the scene looked pretty good but it was missing something... the cow needed some friends but who should join him? I didn't really have time to color up another stamped image and all my stickers looked wrong... what was I gonna do? Then I had my Ah-Ha moment and looked to my trusty Kaiser Craft pearls to save the day. I used three of the tiniest ones and then drew in little wings and heads to turn them into flies! I'm not ashamed to admit I'm pretty proud of those crazy little flies, LOL! :)
