It's Spring! Wanna Pet My Lamb?

Happy happy Monday, everyone! And what a Marvelous Monday, it is! I've been enjoying the wonderful weather we have here! (Let's not talk about those occasional bouts of cold we've had sneaking in here and there. Shhhhhh) I'm n the mood for Spring and am already thinking about Easter.

Today, I'm going to show you Spring Lamb, from Shelly's Images. Isn't he just the cutest?! And, that means he's the featured image - So, you can get him, today only, in Shelly's Store,for a special price! He is perfect for Spring cards and Easter cards! Be quick and beat the herd! Hurry on over to the store and get him before the sale is over! Check out Shelly's other fabulous images, while you're there!

For my layout, I've used the fabulous sketch at Priscilla's Styles. I never ever win there, but I love their sketches, so I do play along from time to time. The sketches this week are particularly fun and interesting, and I couldn't resist using one for my card, today. Ive used a pale yellowish gold card base, and scraps of lovely spring colored papers in shades of pink and green. This is a girly springy eastery card! LOL! The image is colored with Promarkers. The green and pink flowers are from Flor-A Doodle. I removed the original gems from the flowers and replaced them with clear gems (because the colors didn't match originally). The lime green glittered flowers and ribbon are from my stash, as is the little polka dotted bow. I used my clearstar gelly roll pen to add sparkle all over the card, and I think I got a little carried away! LOL! Really, though it doesn't look bad in person, but if you blow up this pic on your screen, it looks like this poor little lamb and his surroundings were attacked by a glitter bug!
(I guess that glitterbug would be me!) =P
