Spring Lamb

Hi this is my card for today using a freebie image fromShelly's Images
and their monthly digi giveaway

Its a spring lamb which is very poignant at the moment , we are on the Isle of Man and it has snowed here which is nothing new to a lot of people but it is the worst snow since 1963 on the island.Sadly many sheep and lambs have died due to them and their fields being covered in snow,villages are still cut off and houses are still without electricity 5 days on.
People from the towns are going out to rescue sheep on the farms that are now accessible
some are being pulled out alive many have not made it. 
Right back to my card I have coloured the lamb slightly and the flowers with  Pro-Markers.
 I have decoupaged the flowers up and then used my brushes and distressed ink to create the back ground.
I decided I would make an easel card so I used 
a Spellbinder die to cut the topper and mounted it on red & green card from Stampin Up.
I used daffodil delight ribbon for the bow and used ribbon and card as the easel stopper and made some
punched daises.
 Spring will get here I am hopeful.
Thanks for calling by
