Can't Stand Losing Ewe!

It's time for a new challenge at Southern Girls and also time to say a big welcome to the new members of the design team,it's going to be great getting to know you all!
So without further ado,the new challenge theme for this fortnight is "Song Theme". As usual we have some brilliant sponsors,be sure to check out the challenge blog for the full details. For my DT card I'm using the rather gorgeous Bo Peep digi by one of the Sponsors,Meljen, of which I am a big fan,I just adore their swirly,stitched designs.
I  thought I'd make a card as a virtual message to my lovely former teamies at Southern Girls, Alicia, Sue and Karen. It's been lovely getting to know you over the last year and I'm going to miss you so the Song Title,a favourite from my youth by the Police is "Can't stand losing you!" just like Bo Peep and her sheep lol! I must say that it's only the song title that fits,the rest of the words certainly don't fit.


So I thought I'd make an easel card,I decoupaged the sheep's heads which I think makes them look extra cute! As I cut the image out,I also made the butterfly 3d but hand drew some stitching trying to echo those on the digi.

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Anything goes53,Stitches,
MIM 61,Anything goes,
Come And Get It,Anything goes,
Dream Valley 19, Anything goes,
Lollipop Crafts 55,Anything goes,
Card Makin Mamas 32,Die Cuts.
I hope you call by and leave some love to all the new  design team members,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
