Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The dog laughed to see such a sight and the dish ran away with the spoon! I always liked that nursery rhyme - the laughing dog and the dish and spoon running away always made smile. Imagine my excitement when I discovered the Over the Moon cut on the Nursery Rhyme cartridge.
I discovered the images back when I first purchased the cartridge but I waited until I needed a baby card to finally cut this image. My friend Pat has a new baby granddaughter - in fact Pat is spending time with her right now. But I still want to send Pat a card to be there when she arrives home.
The cow over the moon image contains two layers - the top and shadow layers. I cut the shadow in pink, but I cut the top layer in two colors, yellow and chocolate brown. I trimmed the cow off of the brown moon and glued him over the yellow moon. Easy, easy to add extra color to the image.
I used a lot of pink and brown on this card - and I love that large dot background on the front of the card. Though I have to tell you, on a creepy scale of 1 - 10, I may have to give the spoon a 7! Seriously, this spoon just bothers me a bit - that is why I stuck him inside the card, LOL.
Here is one last look at the card front. I just love the moon cut. I also really like the stars on the phrase cut, Over the Moon. And let's be honest, my friend Pat is probably over the moon with her new granddaughter!!
