Thank ewes gone crazy!

It's another thank you card! Yes, I am making lots of TY cards on purpose. A friend of mine dropped a not-so-subtle hint that she could use some handmade cards, specifically TYs... and well, I figured I could hook her up with some cute ones. :) I just need to make one more (have a couple more to share though) and then I can put them in a big envelope and off into the mail they will go. Hope she likes all of them!

Quick notes: Lamb from Pun Fun was stamped and colored twice. Then the fluffy part was trimmed from the second image and adhered over the first with dimensionals. The edges were than paper pierced before matting on Chocolate Chip cardstock.

Next the matching sentiment was stamped three times on Pretty in Pink cardstock and punched out with the small oval punch. A piece of Regal Rose cardstock was stamped with the Pretty Petals background in the same ink, the edges sponged with more Regal Rose and then matted on Chocolate Chip. A piece of Whisper White taffeta ribbon was knotted around these layers before adhering the the sentiment ovals to the piece with dimensionals. To finish this piece holes were punched and brads added to each sentiment.

For the final layer a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock was stamped with the Sanded background in the same ink, the edges sponged with Regal Rose Classic ink and both ends of the piece paper pierced. To finish this layer was matted on Chocolate Chip and adhered to a Naturals white card base on top of which the other two panels were added (the main image with dimensionals).

Have a great weekend everyone!
