 Here's the Design Team:
 
Today's stamp set is Country Charm.
Here are my samples.
 
This card took quite a bit of time. The barn and trees were masked in. I stamped the cow on a different sheet of cardstock and cut it out.
 This card was much easier to make. I decided old Bessie here could never go wrong with plaid!

Like how you did the tree & barn background. Wonderful paper piecing of the cow. Plaid combo of black & red is wonderful for a country farm feel.
