Happy Birthday to Ewe!

This is a card I have made for a very good friend. We used to go to College together and have managed to stay in touch for the next 23 years - gosh is it really that long???!!!!! She has two young girls as well so we still have plenty in common but hardly ever see each other. I hope she likes it.
I have used the Back to Nature CD Rom from Polka Doodles - the cute sheep. This is all 3D but my photos are unable to do it justice as usual! I have also glittered the flowers as I hope you can see here.

There was a lot of cutting out and there are some fiddly bits - like the sheeps curls but I couldn't cut any closer I'm afraid.

Despite the fact that I didn't check the challenges when I was making this card it does fit quite a few and here they are

Penny's Paper Challenge - Birthday,

Crafty Creations - Stitching (faux or real),

Tellen's Place - Birthday,

Artful Inkables - Naughty/Nice (I thought this was pretty cheeky but nice!)

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Spring time,

Paper Sundaes Glittery Spring,

One Stitch At a Time - Stitching (faux or real) - This is their first challenge so check them out.

Pile It On - Flowers, and

Bee Crafty Challenge - Stitching (faux or real plus digi).

Please let me know what you think. I really appreciate your thoughts.

Hugs

Great job hun, especially with those curly bits! I have this cd too, have been using it for my Guest spot at PD this month.
I also have a friend who I went to college with - funnily enough 23/4 years ago too!! We live 500 miles apart now but still see each other on the odd occasion.
Wierd how that works sometimes isn't it?
Hugs,

This is amazing! The scenery is so surreal, it made me forget it was a card. How cute is that? I love it. The sheep and those curls are so cute and the glitter on the flowers can be seen if you zoom in. I really love that. How cool for you and your college buddy to stay connected for so long - that's very precious. Thanks for playing along with us at Tellen's Place. ;P
