Happy Birthday to Ewe

Good evening and welcome to apost to announce the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This it is our challenge where -


Here's my card for your inspiration

I used the layout from a new challenge to me Share Joy and used a stamp from a MFT set I purchase quite recently, as I thought I would be able to make good use of the 'sheep' stamps. I was also inspired by quite a few different challenges as well. I must admit that it does make it easier when it comes to the AG weeks!
I used a MFT cover plate I got for Christmas but until today unused, but I left the cutaway parts in and secured then with some tape so the wouldn't fall out when I trimmed it to size. I was using the colours over at MFT's Colour challenge, so inked the panel when cut to size with Picked Raspberry and made the square up to size with a scrap of grey card embossed with a Couture Creations EF, then mounted the panel onto a square card base. The tag was sploshed with some watery Salty Ocean DI and to complete I stamped and coloured the sheep with Copics, fussy cut it and embossed a greeting in white on black. The banner was cut with a MFT banner die but was too large so I cut it down using the stitched line as a guide, it leaves a sort of pinked effect which I quite like.
Some bakers twine to match and job done!

So now it's over to you.
This week we are sponsored by
and Kylie is offering a prize of a $15 gift certificate
Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

So no excuse not to have a go!

I'd like to join in over at -
