It's pasture birthday!

Hello lovely people,

I just couldn't resist all the MFT gorgeousness released this week and just *had* to have a 'few' things - lol!

So, while those are on their way to me I thought I'd best use some bits out of my fairly large pile of unused MFT goodies on this week's Dies to Die For DT card.

I wanted a design where I could use several of the cute critters from the Farmyard Animals set and I haven't made a box card for ages so it seemed like a good opportunity.

This also happens to be a birthday card for my brother who thought this sentiment from the set was pretty he will be getting this card deliberately late just so I could use it - lol!

I've kept the design pretty simple with just a couple of hills on the tabs inside, a small fence and those gorgeously cute animals.  I couldn't quite squeeze in the horse though!
