Karen Burniston's March Designer Challenge - Barns, Barns, Barns

It's time for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge!  The team was challenged to use the new Barn Pop Stand.  I decided to experiment with a technique that Kelly Booth showed the team.  I used a retired Stampin' Up! background stamp called Print Pattern to create the colorful background and Karen's new Farm Greetings for the sentiment.  I used various Stampin' Write Markers to color in the sentiments - I love the open sentiment giving me the ability to color the words in.
For the inside I went a little "Hog Wild"!  Virgil sure likes to have his fun.  I added a party hat, balloon, glasses & mustache from Props 1 & 2.  I used Outdoor Edges & a decorator Katie Label creates an area to write a personal note. 

For the barn, I used the same stamping technique as the front but stamped with Hardwood from Stampin' Up!  I had just enough of the multi-colored paper left over to stamp a cake from Endless Birthday Wishes for the center of the barn.  I used a fine point black pen to accent the doors & windows.  

For the back of the barn, I added another Virgil (on a spinner from Rectangle Pull Card) complete with party blower, hat, balloon & cake.  See Virgil's hat?  He's got an arrow through his hat & a rooster instead of a pompom.  I used a fine point pen to add details to the balloon & Virgil.
And another look at Hog Wild Virgil!
I hope you have enjoyed my card & stop back tomorrow for my 2nd card for the Barns, Barns, Barns Challenge.

Happy Stampin',
