Lamb Easter Card

I have working away making some goodies bags for Jennifer to take to Daycare next week and almost forgot to post an Easter card I made.  When I first saw this lamb stamp in SU's catalog, I knew that I would purchase it - I thought it was so cute.  My husband loves lambs, as he use to raise them for 4H and has passed his love of animals to Jennifer.

I saw a lot of different types/styles in Pinterest but settled on the above.  I made an A2 sized card but saw them made in many different sizes.  My layer was made in Soft Sky which has become one of my favorite colors.  I used my Spellbinders square die to cut out a square in the center of the card for my image which I adhered behind it.  I also used  my scoreboard to score on all 4 sides of the layer just to jazz it up a bit.

I used my aqua painter to color in my little lamb and decided it needed a little bow to finish it off!   I can hardly wait to see Jennifer's face when she sees it!  I was really happy how it turned out.  I was in our yard today checking on our Spring plants popping up enjoying the weather, as the forecast is for snow Sunday!!  The only good thing is that it will warm up and melt anything on the ground, so it won't last for long - thank goodness!  All the kids are dyeing eggs tomorrow, so I had better go cook some!  Have a great weekend!

I submitted this card to Jo's Scrap Shack - Happy Easter Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,

Adorable! I love the lamb and the frame design is so cute. The scored edges add so much to the overall look of it and, of course, the bow is the perfect finishing touch. Soft Sky is one of my favorites, too. I bought extra when I thought it might go away.
