MFT Card Design Superstar Contest (The Whole Herd)

Hello!  Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!  Today, I'm here sharing a card I made for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest!  Be sure to hop over there and check out all the fabulous creations that have already been submitted!  So many gorgeous cards!!!  If you're interested in throwing your hat into the ring, there's still time!  The contest ends this Thursday! 
For my card, I knew I wanted to create something over-the-top, but I just couldn't decide which stamp set to use.  There are so many fabulous choices and I certainly own my fair share of MFT stamps and dies.  So, as I was flipping through my choices, I got the idea to use all of them!  Ok, not really, because I own way more MFT stamps than what you see here, but I did decide to create a little group photo featuring MFT characters from today and years passed.  First I chose a few to stamp and then I masked those off and stamped some more.  Then I masked those off and stamped some more.  What you see here is the result.  A fun little group photo!  I colored the images up with Copic markers, added a couple of tags from the Blueprints 1 Dienamics set and stamped my sentiment in the top left-hand corner.  The sentiment is from the You Gnome Me set. 
Here's a side view:
For the inside of the card, I stamped the little cow from the Whole Herd set and used the sentiment from that set as well.  I masked off the Happy Birthday part and just used the bottom portion.  It seemed fitting given the theme of the card. 
You can find all the sets I used below along with the Copic colors I used to color this scene.  Thank you so much for stopping by and wish me luck!
