Welcome to Day 1 of the Down on the Farm 10th Birthday Bash for Bugaboo stamps!!

Hello everyone,  happy Saturday!  The time has come to celebrate 10 years of great Bugaboo images with a week-long birthday bash!  Our theme for this party is Down on the Farm, and here is my card for day 1:

This card was originally a shaker card when I came up with the you can see, it is not a shaker card.  LOL!  That all fell to pieces when I added the foam tape to the main panel without adding any acetate.  OOPS!  I still doubled up on the foam tape for some extra dimension.  The gingham paper was cut from a piece of tissue paper that I had been saving for just such an occasion.  I adhered it to a cheapy piece of card stock for stability before die cutting it with a Spellbinders hexagon die.  I used a white card base, but didn't like the look of that with the gingham, so I covered it with a piece of kraft.  Much better.    I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the hexagon shape before adhering it directly to the card base after I set the panel down for proper alignment.  I added the cutie patootie Bobblehead Farm Cow image in the lower right corner using liquid glue and doubled up foam tape behind the left side of his head, where it's over the recessed area.  I made a cute little bow out of leftover burlap strings I had been hoarding keeping, and glued it above the hexagonal opening.
