Thank Ewe!

Another thank you card for my son to send and this time the recipient is male so no way can I add any girly stuff. I was looking through the stamped images I already had printed and came across this sugar nellie digi that was a freebie ages ago and I printed out way back then and never did anything with it, such a shame as I think it's quite cute. Anyway I decided it was perfect for a thank ewe card, oops sorry thank you card.

I decided to look for a challenge with more sedate colours to follow and found the Playdate cafe had a colour challenge to use gold, silver and grass green , perfect as sheep eat grass, I thought.  I also found a challenge to recycle and have to say I do do this a fair bit, and have even found myself making purchase choices based on which packaging I could use best for crafting, how sad am I but usually it's just a justification reason to have the sparkly or prettier one that I really want and usually the more expensive one too.The result and other challenges I found to help me along the way are below, see what you think.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-
Auds sentiment-no more than a 2 word sentiment
Playdate cafe-colour challenge
For fun challenges-1 image, 2 buttons or brads and 3 different papers, 2 green and 1 gold the silver is recycled tissue box card

You're right, that image is super cute. I admit that friends now save me ribbon and bits of fancy packaging because "I know you can do something with it." Gotta love recycling!
