Sweet Little Lamb

This sweet little lamb just steals my heart :)  The preciousness of this little scene from Flourishes - Easter Wishes is so perfect for Easter, or I was thinking it would make a lovely child's card or a baby card too, don't you think?

Stamped onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black, I then coloured it up with Copics giving the background sky some pointillism for softness, cutting it out with a simple circle Spellbinder's and framing it up with vellum in Lacey Circles.  Then I decided to create a soft cozy background to the card by using 1 1/2 inch strips cut into triangles to create this quilted sunburst feel to the card, sewing the strips on with a zig zag stitch.  I love the old fashioned warmth it gives.  The paper is MME - On the Bright Side.  

Finished off with a pretty Tailor Made Classic Tag in Emerald Coast cardstock, stamped with Teal Zeal ink, a button, iridescent string,  and some pretty soft seam binding.  

See you soon friends!

I love the whole card, but that background is so awesome. I would like to try it because it looks great for using up scraps but it would probably give me fits trying to cut and line them up properly. Maybe you could do a tutorial on how you did it?
