It's for Ewe

Yesterday I showed you my mom's Mother's Day card.  Today I'm showing the card I gave my sister.  Again, I tried to focus on her hobby.  My sister is a knitter / yarn-fanatic.  I couldn't exactly knit her a card (I'd need to know how to knit for that!!), so I gave her a little sheep to bear the message of the day.

The sheep is from the set Pun Fun.  I colored it in, cut it out and covered it in fun flock (so she'd be wooly).  I stamped it again on Baja Breeze cardstockand cut out the heart so it would pop out. The sheep's ears, hooves and nose and the heart are covered in Crystal Effects.

I made the sentiment on the computer and guessed at the color for the ink.  I punched it out with a punch and then freehanded the brown oval under it.

With a tiny focal point like this, I felt like I had to up the layers for interest and I think it worked ... The designer paper is Manchester.
