Sweet little Lamb

My share today is my Design Team creation for Fantabulous Cricut  - Challenge Me Monday #104 "Out like a Lamb".  The basic idea for this card had been developing in my head weeks.  I finally had time to create it last Saturday and I have been waiting to share with everyone.  It was so much fun to make and when I look at it, it makes me go all soft and squishy inside.  I hope it has the same affect on you.

I started with a 7" x 8" white cardstock, folded in half to create a 3-1/2" x 8" card.  I added 1-1/2" x 8" strip of Bubblegum gingham paper at the bottom of the card.  The next layer is a 3/4" strip and a 2" circle Citrus Leaf cardstock, with a 1-3/4" white circle.  Inside this circle I stamped a circle message that says "Cutie...Cutie" and used a second stamp inked in Bubblegum "Hello" for the center.

I used Create a Critter, pg. 71 <Lamb> cut at 4" for all layers.  The tulips are from the same cartridge, pg. 69 <Bttrfly2> using the accessory feature, cut at 3".  George and Basic shapes was used for the 2" Citrus Leaf circle.  The last cartridge I used was Walk in My Garden, pg. 115 <btfly1> cut at 1" using the blackout feature.  I cut a second one in Citrus Leaf and used the body only.

For my finishing touches I used Baby Pink ink to sponge around the white portion of the lamb, Bubblegum ink sponged around the gingham paper on the lamb, tulips, butterfly wings.  Citrus Leaf ink for the leaves, grass and butterfly body.  I added line doodles with my black  .01 micron pen to my cuts outs and the lamb got eyelashes and cheeks with little white dots for her eyes.  Adhesive pearls were added to the tulips, buttons for the lamb and the butterfly head.  And the last touch was the sweet little Limeade baker twine bows added to my little lambs ears.

Catch the Frenzy!
