Miss Ewe!

Good morning all!
I hope you had a good weekend! Did you have snow on Saturday? 
We did here in Edinburgh, it was just the craziest weather!
Sunday wasn't so bad & we had a great day out at Edinburgh Zoo.
We walked our socks off, but it was fantastic!
Anyhoo, down to business!
It's time for the new challenge over at Eureka Stamps, where the theme is
Here's my little card!

I used the sweet little image  digi 2209 (35) Standing Sheep & the 
sentiment digi 9903 Miss Ewe.
The card base is my usual 6"x 6" in lilac cs with matching paper for matting.
I coloured the image using flexmarkers & promarkers then cut out using 
a spellbinders die. The sentiment was cut with a spellbinders die too!
The layout is the sketch over at Cheerful Sketches
The sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is similar if you rotate it

The papers are 12"x12" Kitschy Kitchen by Melissa Frances.
The buttons & ribbon are from my stash!
I hope you like my card & I'd love it if you can play 
in the challenge this week!
