Hanging Around Ewe

I've tried again to get some clear photos of this cheeky little card I made using the "Nitwit Toppers" I thought it would be a fun idea to have the little lamb swinging like he's hopping around in the meadow. It looks really cute in real life but I just couldn't quite capture it on camera. I made a little scalloped Nestie card but then cut another scalloped circle of the same size which I scored to make almost an easel in reverse card. Before gluing the back circle,I ran the scalloped card through the Cuttlebug again,placing a smaller die over the front panel of the card making an aperture. I then taped some invisible thread to the reverse of the lamb and taped it in place centrally swinging from the top of the aperture before gluing on the scored back panel.
I hope that you can see what I mean as I've taken loads of photos so that you can get the gist of it. I cut some other circles adding a pretty pearly paper on which to write

I finished the bottom edge with a fake button from the same topper sheet and a bow,this also acts as a stop for the easel.

I added ribbon and buttons to the centres of the flowers,

and other images and wording from the sheet.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
