Hambo Stamps Goat

My card is for the Hambo Hoedown featuring one of their newest images Goat.  The challenge theme is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  I've been thinking about that for several days now...  I grabbed the local newspaper off the table and cut into it for my first layer and my recycled element.  

Goat is colored with Copic markers BG10, BG11, BG32, BG34, N1, N3, N5, C0, R20, E70, E71, E74.  I looked at images on Google to see what colors goats really are and was happy to find out they come in a wide variety of colors.  

Part of this challenge was to use one of the sentiments that come with the cute Goat.  I did use their sentiment but edited it and played with it to make it round by following a tutorial for PhotoShop Elements that you can find here.  I added a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut button to the center of my sentiment and threaded crochet thread through the two holes and tied a bow for a finishing touch.

This is adorable! I didn't even think about newspaper for a recycled item. And I too, thought about this for days! LOL Thanks for the link on how to change the shape of the sentiment. I was wondering how you did that. I use Photoshop so hopefully it will work on that too. Or at least get me thinking in the right direction. :)

Jan, your card is adorable! I couldn't come up with a recycled item either - I thought about using a bottle cap, but that wouldn't make it through the mail for OWH. Ah, well, I can vicariously live through your cute card.
