Floating Sheep

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a fantastic day, It has been reasonably sunny here today, but I just wish it was a bit warmer..

The card I have for you today is a card that I made at my local craft class last night. This card is going to be submitted into the challenge on the blog "Cards for men which has a challenge of Easter"
The card itself is a square card blank, with swirly green backing paper, the "topper" as such is two scalloped circles in green card that have been cut in half. a strip of green card that was backed onto stripy paper was attached to the two half circles using white brads. the strip was then decorated with a sparkly flower and three sparkly circles... The flower has been "jazzed" up with a circle of striped paper and green florist string. The three sheep have been created using a sizzix sheep die the head has been cut twice for each sheep and has been mounted together using foam pads to give the sheep dimension. The sheep have then been put onto acetate and the acetate has been slipped into the "circle topper" the sheep can then be moved around the card and the sheep can be adjusted to sit at different heights.
The card is a brilliant Easter card and or birthday card, and couldn't be better for a man.
