Here's my card

I started by creating the background with distress inks (mowed lawn, twisted citron, lucky clover) and ink blending tools, placed randomly on an A2 card panel. I was recently introduced to the partial diecutting technique and am kind of obsessed with it now. I don't actually have a lamb/sheep die but with fussy cutting, I was able to achieve the same effect. I stamped the cute lamb/sheep from Gerda Steiner Designs' How Are Ewe stamp set and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things' Ewe and Me Forever stamp set. I added some color using a Copic W2 marker. 

I'm the last person on the blog hop. In case you started part-way, here's our line up in case you got lost along the way.
