Whimsy August Digital Release - Day 2

Hi Everyone, and welcome to Day 2 of our August Digital Stamp Release Showcase! On Wednesday 1st August, Whimsy Stamps released this month's new Digital designs. So from then until 4th August the Whimsy Stamps Digital DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with Daily Mini Blog Hops, and I am part of today’s hop! Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way, and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw. To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00pm EST (or 5pm UK) tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog on 5th August.

Here is my card for today!

And of course the angle shot...

For today's card I decided to use this quirky but cute "Cow Buzz" by Lia Stampz, available from Whimsy Stamps. It had such a cute look on it's face that I just couldn't resist - and I truly apologise for the extremely corny sentiment.... Think I can get away with blaming my raging fever??? No, I don't think there's any excuse either LOL! (Hanging my head in shame!)
Anyhoo, he is coloured with Copics, but I used chalks for the clouds as I'm finding it gives a softer fluffier look. I used a glitter pen and Stickles to make the Bee stand out more, and just finished it off with some twine and buttons.
