Herd it's your birthday!

Good morning and welcome to my second post as GD over at Sketch Saturday.

Here is my take on this week's sketch.

Here is this week's sketch for you.

This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!, so I decided to use this cute cow stamp from their 'Birthday Farm Animals' set that I got recently and had not used.
To start off, I took a 5" x 7" panel and die cut a set of apertures with a circle die. The cows were stamped then coloured with Copics, fussy cut and then arranged with their heads peeking through the holes then the panel was trimmed down to leave a border when placed over my base card. .
After looking at the layout it looked a little bare so I decided to drawn some black splodges with a Copic to look like a Freisian cow! Then the background needed a strong colour way so I used a panel of NitWits paper that matched the party hats and then cut away part of the top panel to reveal it in the bottom left corner, the sentiment was written free hand to go with the cows! The top layer was then popped up on pads and there you have it.

Please check out the rest of the DT's inspiration and join in.
