Double Trouble 75 with TSOT - Birthday Ewe

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 75! 

This week, there are a few challenge options - the small graphic is below. Please visit the Double Trouble website for detailed information.

The music component - I used a music embossing folder for the background and also added 

some hand-drawn music notes to the sentiment piece. 

The zoo animal component - A pair of ewes would like to wish you a happy birthday.

The sketch component - the TSOT sketch was used for the design of my card. 

I began by creating a cloud background and then die cutting some rolling hill pieces in green. The ewes were stamped and die cut and added to the centre rectangle. Some coordinating sequins were placed inside  to create a shaker. The sentiment was stamped along with a couple of hearts and drawn music notes. I added a green ribbon across the bottom of the shaker to meet that part of the sketch. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret the components of this challenge! 

I am on the design team for Try Stampin' on Tuesday so my card will appear in the design team section on that website.
