A Calf's Picnic

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is Picnics!  Create any type of project, but don't forget your die cuts!!    

I thought it would be fun to use this image as a calf's picnic page in my faith journal!  ;)
  To set the scene, I started with this delightful image, My Cow, from A Day for Daisies and Copic colored this duo.  The sky and grass are filled out with CTMH sponged inks in Sky and Sweet Leaf.  

Several dies add to our picnic scene including the following:  
Tree:  Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch
Lacy oval:  Cricut Design Space ~ Lacy Labels
Oval with Text:  Cricut Design Space ~ A Child's Year
Apples:  Cricut Design Space ~ Cheerful Seasons

CTMH Papers, Stamps, Inks
Inks (these colors retired):  Topiary, Sweet Leaf, Sky, Holiday Red, 

Papers all retired:  Sweet Leaf, black, Chocolate, and a stash one that I don't have the name 

I finished it off with some embellishments including:
CTMH Gems (retired)
Twine for a Bow

This is off to the following challenges/pages:
