Thank Ewe

For my card this week I decided to do a non - traditional thank you card , meaning using a some what non- traditional sentiment. I always love to have a few thank you cards in my stash so it is easy to pop one in the mail for a friend or family member. 
"Posey's For You" is a fun stamp with it's fluffy ewe and posey's and when I found I had the Thank Ewe sentiment - it was perfect for a fun thank you thank "ewe" card. This cutie just makes me smile and I hope it will make the recipient smile too! 

I coloured this cutie with alcohol markers, did some shading with Prismacolor pencils and cut it out using a pleated circle die. I thought patterned paper from Echo Park and Lawn Fawn were perfect for this stamp. 
The paper was cut to size and glued to my card stock. Next I cut a circle out of card stock to put behind my image. I didn't want the "bulk" I would have gotten if I put it on top of my patterned paper and card stock so once it was in position, I marked it with a pencil and then cut it to fit snuggly against the card stock. I cut my sentiment banner with a stitched banner die and stamped it so it was centered under my stamp. 
A banner with a heart, enamel dots and some gingham ribbon finish off my card.
