3CT - I've Never Seen A Purple Cow

I've Never Seen A Purple Cow.  I never hope to see one.  But I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see then be one!
Welcome to Three Clover Thursday where the FUN never stops!  This week our challenge was 3-Fold.  First we had to use (Purple) then (Glitter) and lastly it had to be a (Birthday) card.  You see our illustrious leader, Kerry Donovan-Casey just happens to be celebrating her birthday April 1st and she loves the color purple and sparkly things.                                         For my card I chose to use shades of purple.  I had a hard time finding an designer paper in my stash that had purple in it.  I came up with this pattern by (Doodlebug Design).  I paired it with Green Galore, Gable Green, Lovely Lilac and an unknown piece of lavender card stock that I'm sure is not an SU color.  I ran that piece through the Cuttlebug with the Perfect Paisley embossing folder and then added the striped designer paper.  I layered this to the Gable Green and Lovely Lilac and added Lavender Stickles to the outside of the card in a random pattern.  Over the designer paper I added a piece of Green Galore that I used my new Dotted Wave Punch (EK Success) and raised it up using foam mounting tape.
I stamped the cow (The Greeting Farm - McSplendid Farm) and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils in various shades of purple/lavender and blended with Gamsol.  I added some Heather Glitter (Art Institute) to the cow/bulls forehead.  I mounted this to Gable Green and Lovely Lilac Nestabilitie Dies.  The Party Hat and Sentiment are from Studio G.  I added glitter (Heather and Key Lime) to the hat and raised it up with foam mounting tape as well.  The sentiment was embossed with Black EP and I added 3 Green Brads under it (Queen and Co.).
So drop on by Kerry's Blog and check out the other Design Team members cards and PLEASE stop by their blogs and leave them comments.  It makes us feel so much better when we know you enjoy our art work by leaving us a little lovin (via the comment section) on our blogs.  Hugs to you and have a great day.
