Okay, maybe my sheep isn't black, but he is a little gray.

I really love the way this card turned out. This is for the Digital Tuesday challenge which is Emboss It.
I used the cute little Sherman the sheep that Jane Beljo drew for Squigglefly and printed it out twice so I could cut the woolly parts out and emboss them with the swiss dots embossing folder. The edges were sponged with some ink. Then I popped up the woolly and the head for some dimension.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the lacy strip. I get very discouraged with some of the Martha Stewart punches because they are persnickety about going through card stock. I had to punch this one out of paper.
The "love ewe" sentiment is printed out on the computer. I added a little bow to the top and sponged turquoise around the edge. I finished off my embellishing with a clear bauble over the heart circle on the designer paper border! It's very simple, but I like it a lot.
The Squigglefly newsletter is out and I see they are giving a discount code on all purchases through the weekend. Just use the code "weekender" when you shop! Just in time for tomorrow's release of new images! Don't forget Digi Day's pajama party tomorrow evening at 7 pm central on Card Universe!
Have a fantastic day, and thanks for looking!
