Herd It's Your Birthday

I love this sketch layout because it really gives you a lot of space to add a pretty large sentiment or image. I decided to crack out a stamp set I've not used in well over a year that I had purchased from a fellow crafter on a destash. I used the Jump For Joy stamp set by Elzybells who, unfortunately, is no longer in business. I stamped the fence first onto my white cardstock and then masked it off so I could stamp the sheep behind the fence. I punched a few small clouds using a Fiskars punch and adhered them onto to panel using some removable snail. Once the main images were Copic colored I used my BG10 to create the sky using small dots and then YG63 to create the grass using the same technique. I mounted the panel onto some sunflower yellow cardstock from Hobby Lobby and popped it up using foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP. I used some Pebbles Hello journaling cards to create the layers on my card. These journaling cards have journaling tags on one side and beautiful patterned paper on the other side. They are perfect for whipping up a quick and easy card! Once they papers were all layered onto my white card base I adhered some random yellow buttons with some dark blue American Crafts jute twine onto the card using Aleene's Tacky Dot singles. They hold buttons on really well and will even hold up to through the mail. I love this adorable little card and I hope you will too!
