Sheep and balloons

I have made this card for this week's challenge over at Catch the Bug - it's photo week - I was inspired by the colors.

I used a Bobblehead sheep (not yet in store) and balloons, colored with Promarkers. I've used stitched dies from three different sets, for the background, the frame and the tag. Kraft paper, a strip of Tim Holtz DP and white twine.
My sister has three young boys so she seems to be in constant need of birthday cards for young ones and I think this one could work for either a boy or a girl.

This card is also for: 
Simply Create Too - #142 USE STITCHING (REAL OR FAUX)
Crafty Gals Corner - #174 3 or More Layers
I love Promarkers - #368 Anything Goes/Option of Animal

This is a great card, Pia, It is so true about young Mums needing countless cards. I think my youngest daughter toted up the number of birthday cards she gives per year as it was over 120!
I cannot keep up with that so she frequents our thrift shop which often has donated handmade cards for one dollar. The are very simple designs but it helps her card budget.

I should be a better Mum and batch bake some for her. I was thinking this card would be perfect to batch bake.
