Oh Where, Oh Where....

has my mojo gone, oh where oh where can it beeeee!! This may have been the hardest card I have ever made in my LIFE!! I LOVE it, don't get me wrong, but I think by the time I got it done, I had every My Favorite Things set out on the table along with every black embellishment I could dig out!!! I made this card for the MFT guest designer challenge that was issued last night at the release party. The challenge was to use black paper and embellishments on your card. I used some white, and some black and white, but I think you get the point. I stamped this image early this morning to make some 3x3 cards for one of the other challenges from the party last night, but I just couldn't get inspired to do anything with it. I had already had both of my sheep stamped on watercolor paper with black Stazon when I started to "see" my card, that was almost 11hrs ago, and I am just now done!! I am pooped, so I am going to make this super quick. I colored the grass in with my Old Olive marker and aqua painter. The grass stamp is from the MFT set It's a Jungle Out There. I sponged in the sky with Bashful Blue. The sentiment(isn't it perfect) is from the Paper Pretties set Wade E. Bug. I wanted it to look like a thought bubble so I used my black brads to help create that . The sentiment was punched out with my SU oval punch and the black oval was cut out with my oval Nestabilities. It looked kinda plain, so I used my white gel pen to add some dots to the scallops. I put liquid applique all over both sheep and heated it to make it puffy. Then I stamped a separate sheep and cut out his head and popped it up to give it some dimension. The black strip was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and then I used my corner rounder to make scallops. I added some black gingham ribbon and white brads and put that up on dimensionals. The SU Aida cloth background stamp was used to make the background. I added some photo corners and it was done. I really love this card, I just wish it hadn't caused me so much grief!! Wish me luck in the contest, there are always so many fabulous entries!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
