A Sweet Easter Lamb!

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, The Shepherd, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello friends!
  With Easter coming early this year, it's time to get those Easter cards made and ready!  This month's release at Our Daily Bread designs has some perfect sets for Easter and honestly I love them all!  If you know me, you KNOW I love all the flower stamps, but I also love this absolutely sweet lamb set!  It's called The Shepherd and I think the artwork is just awesome!  I created this card using Spellbinders Labels 8 and Decorative Labels 8.  I also used a SB Back to Basics Tag.  My scene is colored with Copics and then I popped up the Our Daily Bread designs Fence Die cut on 1/8" dimensionals to give just a little depth.  The greenery is punched with a Punch Bunch punch.  The flower is a Prima.

Here is the set I usesd:

 I am entering this in the following challenges:

 Whimsy Inspiration - fancy edges,  WordArt Wednesdays -  word art freebie OR use an encouraging uplifting sentiment - anything goes, Addicted to Stamps and More - markers (I used copics), Penny's Paper-Crafty - Ribbons/Bows, Bearly Mine -  Anything Goes, LEJ Designs  Anything Goes, Twisted Tuesday - No twist!

Adorable! I love the layers of white, it reminds me of the antique Holy Cards. Good design how you added green in front as well as in back of fence. Beautiful, Grace!

I love the way you have the fence tucked in under the die cut. All the white with the lanb which to me symbolized the Lamb of God, the white, (" tho your sins be as scarlet") as snow and your green made me think of Psalm 23.

Grace, this is just gorgeous. Love the frame and love how you did the clouds. And that picket fence is just so perfect with this adorable image, which I just ordered today :).

This is just so soft, sweet and lovely. I love this stamp set, and you've done a beautiful job with it.

By the way, I made it to Michael's yesterday and got my patterned papers. I had to pull up your email while I was there to remember the names, but I found them both (along with a few other goodies) and I can't wait to create with my new stuff. You've done it to me, Grace! Made me spend some more money!!! lol

Thanks so much for sharing with us again this week. What a blessing to have your gorgeous creations shared with us and to have you fellowship with us. Have a blessed week!
