Counting Sheep Instead of Sleep

Another midnight inspiration moment!

Pondering the current TGIF color challenge last night and this card interrupted my sleep…but I filed it to memory and made it this morning!

I was going to color the amazing sheep with markers, then I realized we have a horrible, awful oversight by Stampin’ Up! — NO COASTAL CABANA Stampin’ Blends? I considered making signs and picketing at the home office, but a protest of one may not get their attention.

So I stamped it on card stock and fussy cut around it.

Still looks awesome, so I’ll save my signs for later…

The Counting Sheep stamp set and Sheep Dies are both items you can choose FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, but if you have to get one at a time, select the dies first, as they are only available while supplies last!

Couldn’t resist the color challenge at the Friday Mashup…and whenever there is cake, I’m ALL in!

It has a fun fold to open like this:

Take a Coastal Cabana marker to a little bitty Glimmer Paper flower and add a pearl:
