Elzybells Sheep Celebration

When I saw this sketch it made me think of my cute trio of sheep ready to party. I had this cute card to send out after I bought a gift magazine subscription. Of course, I’d made my own card and found this under a stack of papers. I though it would quick to alter into a personalized card and I was right! Scroll down to see the before and after photos. As usual, I was able to combine a few challenges while having fun. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Image Detail The photo doesn't quite capture it, but I used my white gel pen to add 'swirls' to the sheep's coats.
The sentiment is part of this cute set from Elzybells. In case you can't see it, it says "Let's party 'til the cows come home.'
Here's my 'recylced' elements. The card on the right is pretty cute as is, but I wanted to cover it up (I have no other plans to send out American Girl as a gift). The card on the left is what I came up with.
I just covered up the preprinted parts with DP and VOILA, you'd never know it was recylced.
