Ewe doing okay?

I used my completely UNDERUSED Farm Fever stamp set from SU for this card. I got the flowers from the dollar bin at Michael's... some of the G-Studio stamps... gotta love em! Anyway, you can't really see the "emerging color," but I used Pretty In Pink for smaller flowers first, then embossed the larger flowers with clear EP and brayered over with Rose Red. Using the ticket punch, I "ticketed" all the corners, mounted it on Black, and then onto Mellow Moss cs.
As you can see, I used cotton balls and pulled them apart to make the wool more life-like on the sheep.I recently sent one of this card to my Gramma... but I still have one (I usually make an extra of each card I design so I have one for my stash.
Another Fact about me...
I got my first tattoo on October 16, 1998 - I was a Senior in High School and my boyfriend was away at Boot Camp... once he graduated, he celebrated with his friends by going & getting a tattoo... I wanted to feel closer to him, so I got a tattoo at the same time. It's a little butterfly in the small of my back. After I got my tattoo, I went to our High School football game to show it off to a few of my friends... and then, being the "honest jane" that I am, I went home and showed my Mom. I couldn't keep it from her. By the way, about 8 months later, my boyfriend became my husband.
Tune in again soon... I'm dying to share some more stuff with you! And thank you all for the well wishes in our recent "life happenings." SBS10 Sistahs - I haven't forgotten about you... I'll be visiting your blogs soon... I'm sorry I've been slacking.

Penny, I hope your wrist is feeling better soon... watch the mailbox.

What a great idea -- my kids would love this. And that card will make ANYONE smile! So cute...thanks for sharing about your tattoo. (I graduated in 1997, so we're not TOO far apart in age! How cool that your then boyfriend became your hubby!)
