I love it how you always find matching colours for your cards. And goodness me, that sheep is so adorable! :)

Claudia this is such a stunningly sweet card! I love the scene you created with the Magnolia sheep...very clever! Your colouring is flawless! I love how you shaded the image and how you achieve almost a shiny highlight to the areas you left lighter, like on his hat....super gorgeous! The card design is fabulous too! Everything about it is fabulous!!!
Hugs, TaraG
