Are Ewe Lost For Words

I wanted to put one of those cute sentiments with the word Ewe in them, only I didn't leave room for one did I. Still I got it in my title at least lol. The image is a Freebie this week at A Day for Daisy's, cute isn't it. You have until Thursday to get her, and put her on an entry.  I cut my card using a large Go Kreate frilly die, and because you need to leave a bit uncut for the fold, I cut an extra piece and covered it with mulberry paper to create a contrast and even the shape. I used some more of the mulberry to cut a couple of branches. 
I first saw her on Dorcas Designs, and used Dorcas's coloured in version as my guide when I did my shading...dispite her using Prisma Colours, and my choice of promarker. 
Promarkers used :- Skin - Blush, Tan, Vanilla; Hair - Terracotta, Raw Sienna, Chestnut; Lamb - Warm Grey 1, 3 & 5, blended with blender; Shrug & Ribbons  - Poppy & Red; Dress & Hat -  Blush for the shadows 

A Day for Daisy's challenge is stitching, and I've put a row of chain embroidery stitches along my paper lace border...along with a row of red faceted gems. The cord I used is from some lampshade edging I had left over from a long ago project. I've dismantle it into different elements...you'll see other bits in future projects no doubt lol. 

I cut my flower from some paper scraps using the centre  of a Marianne Designs lacy circles die. I cut a few ribbons and made a fancy red bow to sit behind the flower.   The edges of the flower are coated with copper coloured acrylic paint....outlined the card and papers with it too.
