I'm Baa-aak!!

No, today is not all about sheep--it's about goats!  Specifically, Goat digi image from Hambo Stamps!  There's a new challenge this week, but before I get to it, I have to brag that I was last week's random winner in their challenge.  I have a wish list thi-i-i-i-i-i-iss long, from which I chose Wee Henry Fishing.  I have a crush on Wee Henry, and love the line from Hambo.
Meanwhile, back to my challenge entry.  Their challenge is to recycle, reduce, reuse- (which is my crafting goal for 2012)!  My card uses all leftover papers from previous projects (reduce), a swirl clip from another project (reuse) AND part of a manilla file folder as a frame around my Copic-colored image (recycle). 

Goat digi image comes with three sentiments.  I chose: "Happy Birthday!" and on the inside: "From one old goat to another..."

I had fun coloring and shining up the birthday boy, and as you can see, I love to ink!  I inked the edges of each piece of paper, as well as the edges of my card base. 

I also love the color combo of brown and blue.  What's your fave color combo?  Tell me in the comments section below and I will send one random person this card.

Here are the materials I used to make it:
Copic markers, CTMH Ink, Cat's Eye Inks, Duck Tape Runner, leftover manilla folder, Creative memories self-healing pad and my paper trimmer.  Oh, plus a clip from the clearance table at Staples!!

Now get your dancin' shoes on and come join the fun at the Hambo Hoedown!!

What a cute card and I love the sentiment! Really great how you did his nose and the little metal things on his overalls.
