Moo-jo Monday Pocket Card

I have had an absolutely awful day.  Enough said!
Thank you for understanding.

Deep breath.

Today's Mojo Monday card is a birthday card for my cousin to give to her dad.  Her family once had a working farm.  I used to get so annoyed at family reunions because Nancy, my cousin, always had to leave early so they could get home and milk the cows.  They still live on a section of the original farm, but the cows and corn fields are long gone.  Nancy has a small truck patch and grows rows and rows of beautiful sunflowers.  Just a bit of background for this card.

This is the card I made for today's  
I have turned the sketch on the side. Rather than making a tall and skinny card, I have made a short, chubby card.  (3.5x5.5)
And I have also made a pocket for the card:

The back of the card reads:
Hope you have an udderly wonderful birthday! 

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Come and Get It Challenge - Anything Goes with a Sentiment 
Corrosive Challenge #206 - B Unique (I've used Bovines, Brads, and a Bow.)
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards Challenge #71 - Bingo (I've used the middle row: Green, Bow, String.) 

I feel much better now.
