Sexy Sheep 50th Birthday Card - Humour Required


Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog

I was recently asked to make a 50th Birthday card for a welsh lady who has humour, the brief, you can use sheep....................... after a little internet searching here is what I came up with for her.

This is an 8 x 8 inch card and follows the sketch at 
here is the sketch followed

The base layer and contrast is silver mirror card, the papers are a new stack I just purchased from Grimsby Crafts.  The daisy punch is layers x 2 with some gorgeous lace underneath it.  The large oval image plate is a grand nestie oval with matching scallop oval.  The sentiment is Personal impressions.  The pearls on this creation are from the Hobby House and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The lace around the image plate frame is from Grimsby Crafts as is the sentiment. 

Here is a close up of the sketch like image I found, a very sexy sheep, I coloured her softly to create a water coloured impression.
I do hope she likes it :)

As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
