Laugh often

It is a cold wet miserable afternoon here in Melbourne today ... perfect to have the heater on and in the craft room! I managed 2 cards and here is the first.
I followed a sketch from Insprational Card Sketches - we had to choose a sketch and I chose #44. I am also submitting it for Party Time Tuesdays where you had to make a square card and I have also incorporated a little stitching for Paper Sundaes - I am not a great sewer on the machine so I did a little hand sewing!

I love my animal stamps from Ferngully stamps

I have had this rather wide red and white gingham ribbon for a while and I finally managed to make a card that suits it.
materials - American Crafts powder and crimson cardstock; MME Stella & Rose 'gertie' papers; Ferngully stamps cow and fence, Studio g 'laugh often' stamps; Stazon timber brown, Versa Color sky blue ink; 23mm red/white gingham ribbon; embroidery thread; Marvy pens - blender 0, orche 13, dark brown 18, leaf green 48, cherry 65, sky blue 75.
