MFT Color Challenge #22: From the Whole Herd

Good morning crafty friends!

Today I have a project that will be for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge #22 over on their blog! Here is the current color scheme for this challenge:

So, obviously the first thing that we all think of when we see this color scheme is Halloween. However, I didn't want to go that route. I wanted to create a card for Father's Day so I could be ahead of the game this year! lol  I had recently picked up the new "Whole Heard" stamp and really wanted to use it because, well, my dad has tons of chickens and has been tossing around getting a goat! So it was a perfect set for his Father's Day card!  Luckily, he has both orange and black chickens, so that took care of 2 colors, and the other two, purple and green, I would transform to be the grass and sky!  Here is my project inspired by this color scheme and stamp set:

and for the inside greeting, I used a Kelly Perkey stamp set from Simon Says Stamp:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
There is almost a full week left to play along over at the MFT Color Challenge Blog if you'd like to play along!

Have a great day!
