Happy Birthday to Ewe!


I love this Penny Black image, so I added a birthday hat to match his boots and made it into a birthday card! I colored him with Copics, adding some layers of die-cut grass in 2 colors of green done with a SNSS grass die. I sponged the sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink and added a few firework explosions with a Winnie and Walter "sparkle" stamp set. I die cut the image and layering panels with Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle dies and my Big Shot. The sentiment is from SNSS.

I'm sharing this with the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - "It's a Zoo Out There" - use an animal on your project.

It's also heading over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes."

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Friday whatever you're doing!

The sheep is adorable, and I really thought you added something very textured to him, but I don't see that in the description so it must be your coloring. Very fun!

Carol, that sheep has got to be the sweetest! Love how you did the background and put the fireworks on there! He must be having a "bang up" birthday! Haha! Love those Stitched Rectangles too! TFS and get out and enjoy the weather today....tomorrow it goes downhill. Hugs~

Ewe is so funny! If all we made were animal cards, we could keep each other laughing for ages! The stitched rectangles make everything look so neat and tidy. OMG, I love the boots!

Cute one, Carol. Love those colors together and the party hat. Your other cards this week are beautiful. I especially like the Wednesday card. I was helping a girl make a scrapbook Wednesday and I used we used that same punch. Wishing you a great weekend.
