Midnight Madness & Teapot Tuesday

This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week, number 40. Here is the sketch:
I used that wonderful 3-d/pyramid technique again from Sherry Cheever. I love these vintage prints and this look! I found a vintage font for the Happy Birthday and used my computer to create that. The buttons are from Papertreyink. No stamps!

I thought this card fit the Teapot Tuesday challenge at Cindy's "glob" HERE. She is traveling with the bovines this month, it appears. After leaving Alicia and company, now she has discovered a bull named Bodacious who must win the heart of his loved one in Paris. (pronounced PairEE of course). We must help him decorate a lovely resort. I'm bringing a bouquet of pansies to help set the scene. You may remember another famous bull by the name of Ferdinand. Rumor has it that the Great Bodacious is a direct descendant of Ferdinand. Do you remember the famous Spanish bull? He did not enjoy bull fighting. No, he preferred to sit and smell the flowers. He was a pacifist in the midst of all that warfare with the bulls and bullfighters. He thought it was a bunch of bullcorn. Ferdinand's descendants live among the bulls today and Bodacious inherited the flower loving gene. I believe that if enough flowers fill the resort, our Bodacious will not only win the prize for best decorated area, but he will also be content to sit with his beloved and smell the flowers all day.

Merci for stopping by and Au Revoir!

See, I knew if I nicnamed you Git 'er done Girl you would Git 'er done and come to a teaparty! But Lori, I must say, of all the flowers out there in the world, you bring PANSIES to a macho, rough and tough, buck em off in 2 seconds flat, famous bull by the name of Bodacious? What were you thinking? Pansies????

Snort! I had no clue about Ferdinand! Come on, come with me.....we gotta tell the other teapotters, they might wanna get Bodacious autograph!

This card is drop dead gorgeous and even though you chose PANSIES, I think you just insured a win for our big ole lovable flower loving, pansie toating tough-guy bull!
