Baby Card with Lamb

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share, that I made for a friend who's just recently had her first baby. I also made the card to enter into the following challenges:

Lawnscaping - Patterned Paper
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Joy's Photo Inspiration

Vicky's Inlinkz Link Manager giveaway

Here's the card I made:

I was inspired by the kind of vintage feel and soft colors of the inspiration board, as well as the patterned paper challenge when making this card. I also wanted it to fit the baby theme, so I found some waaay old patterned paper in my scraps, and cut it into a square with zigzag scissors (also waaay old =). I stamped the lamb from Lawn Fawn using brown memento, and colored in the face, ears and legs with copics. I added some faux stitching to the other parts of the lamb, and along the sides of the patterned paper, hoping to give the project a look of faux fabric or something like that. I decided not to add a sentiment, as I couldn't find a Norwegian one in my stash that worked. I adhered the patterned paper flat onto a white cardbase, and added the lamb image piece on top using foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I absolutely adore the simplicity of this card! The soft papers paired with the sheep is perfect! The stitch lines is the best touch! This is fantastic.
