A Birthday Card!

My grandson will be turning 1 on Wednesday and we are celebrating today because his grandparents from up North are on vacation and are here! Isaiah's room is decorated in a farm theme and my daughter wanted to do a farm theme birthday party! I have been so intrigued in the creations that Jani from Paper Compulsions has been making that I wanted to try and make a cute scene card too! 

I didn't have any exact measurements I just winged it! I'm really happy with the results and I know my grandson will love it!
I used my Country Life Cartridge to make all the big cuts and then added lots of little animals all around the farm. I wanted to dress up the barn a little and added shutters. I inked the silo to give it a metal look and on the weather vain I heat embossed it to make it look like copper. I used flocking on the grass  and chalked the trees and some hills. I hand cut out some bushes and a pond too! 
I'm going to enter this on The (Paper)Trail Blog!
Thanks for stopping by:)

Funny! I was going to say "Wow! You rocked it!" before I opened the comments section and saw that reactions already. abusybee beat me to it! So, I just have to tell you that you really did a fabulous job! And, your dimensions are great! Wish I could wing it that well!
