Sugar Nellie birthday card

This card was made using the sketch on this weeks Sugar Bowl challenge - you were also supposed to use kraft card.  I had never coloured on kraft before, but decided to have a go.  I used Prismacolor pencils as I thought the lighter colours would show up better on the kraft card.  The wee lamb was coloured with 'fluffy stuff' and the bottle and wellies got a coat of glossy accents.  The paper is 12 x 12 sheets I've had for ages - they were Basic Grey 'Archaic.'  The stamp is one of the first Sugar Nellies I ever bought and I don't think they are still available.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the kraft card and a little piece of rafia to represent straw.  The sentiment was computer generated and punched out with a SU oval punch.  The '6' was die cut using a Quickutz die.  This weeks challenge on CCT is 'Signs of Spring,' so I will enter it there as well.  Now I will have to get my desk tidied up again - before I start my next batch of cards - I got an order for 8 more last night! Mind you, I still have another 80th card to make to fulfill my last order, and I also have to make 380 motifs on my Craft Robo for wedding invites!  I think I'll need to retire soon, as I need more time for crafting!!
Hannah got through her HE practical yesterday and everything turned out OK - here's how it looked -
