Thanks Ewes Variation No. 2

Sometimes I have to make variations of things I've made before. This time I used a mash up of Papertrey Ink's My Punny Valentine and various Cricut cuts.

But what was realllllly fun about making this card was making it so the feet move side to side. 

The sheep faces and feet are from Papertrey Ink's My Punny Valentine stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select Ink (with Black Soot Distress Ink) and fussy cut, except when I was cutting the legs I left enough paper at the top to punch a tiny hole. I looped the wire through the leg hole and then stuck the straight end into a very thick piece of dimensional foam.

For the Cricut parts, the "Thanks" was a two-part process. One layer of the Gypsy used for the "Thanks" to be drawn with Cricut Markers using Street Sign Solutions, colored in with regular markers. The word bubble is a rounded rectangle from Gypsy Wanderings and altered pennants from Pretty Pennants welded on the Gypsy on a second layer. The flock body is made from a cloud on Create-A-Critter.

The background is a 4.5" x 5.5" PTI's Kraft cardstock embossed with Darice's Wood Grain embossing folder. The card base is an A2 made from PTI's Vintage Cream.
