FFIF8

Here's this week's inspiration for the FFIF8. It's a great room with cute lambs and the sweet color combo of so saffron, black and white. Have fun with it. Here' s my sample card:
I started out by sponging certainly celery and bashful blue onto white cardstock. I used a stamp from watercolor mini's with wild wasabi to make the meadow's ground cover. The fence is simply tiny little scraps that were on my desk. I stamped the sheep jumping over the fence (very fitting, since I couldn't go to sleep last night) and then stamped it again on white cardstock. I made black swirls on his body, cut it out and mounted it on the sheep jumping over the fence. I matted it on so saffron and black, to which I added white dots with a white pen. The card base is so saffron, layered with black (dotted with white pen), white (dotted with black pen) and then another layer of so saffron, all tied up with this cute black ribbon with white polka dots.
Hope you have fun with the challenge - don't forget to upload with the keyword FFIF8!

Neat card!! You did a great job on the challenge. I didn't notice the sheep at first and I like how you used it for the focal image!
