Second post of the day. Scroll down if you missed my busy bee card.
This card uses the pretty freebie that Tammy from A Day For Daisies gave us last week to use for the challenge. The image makes me think of my mother because she has spoken often of the baby lambs they had here on the old homestead when she was a kid. I guess sheep were not an animal that my grandfather thought worth keeping around because we never had sheep when I was a kid.
I tried my best in Photoshop, but the colors of this card would not come out like the real thing. The card is actually more of an aqua and the yellow chalking and pink in the plaid are not that bright.
I layered two different Nestabilities label die cuts and cut a slit in the bottom one to run the ribbon through. The stitching was done by hand with embroidery thread and the image was colored with Copic markers.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
A Day For Daisies--in stitches
Craft Us Crazy--spring/Easter
Dutch Dare--spring has sprung
Cooking It up with Katie--die cut, scallops, monochromatic
Simon Says Stamp--spring colors/Easter
Claudia and Co.--monochromatic
Going Grey with Scrap Creations--recipe
Guess what! I just got another Mexico Phil digi. Since you all got such a kick out of that card, you might be seeing old Phil again soon.
