Thank “ewe”

Here is the card I made for today’s Splitcoast Ways to Use It challenge. I wanted to make a simple card to highlight my fluffy ewe. She really is fluffy!!

The challenge was to try to jazz up our sentiments. We were to add bling over an i or in place of an o, switch out a letter or word for another object (for example in a “Happy cupcake day” sentiment you could place a little cupcake embellishment or stamp of a cupcake in place of the word), or just highlight a word somehow, maybe by coloring over it with a marker. It could be a simple, subtle jazz or a big whammy of a pizzazz!
I used 110 lb. card stock and layered a panel of S-U DSP and Crushed Curry. I stamped the ewe from Gina K.’s “Down on the Farm” in black Staz On. I added liquid applique and heat set it, which makes it puff up. I added some gray copics to her face and around the bottom of her body and legs to give it a little depth. I stamped the sentiment, “Thank ewe so much!” and punched out the “Thank” and “So Much!” with my punch and layered it a little with the curry and placed it on either side of my ewe, so the ewe replaces “you”. I used my nesties to layer the main image in Pumpkin Pie. I added a yellow adhesive rhinestone to each corner of the patterned paper for a little more bling. Thanks for having a look!
