Soft Ball - Birthday Card for a Boy

Many things are soft so I have a few ideas for this week's challenge at CASology. I hope I have time to make more than this one, but I'm going away this weekend and have a few things to do before leaving. Anyway - here's my first of hopefully more entries:

This funny fella is a stamp from Stamp-It (Australia). The stamp comes with that sentiment, but I didn't like the font they had used so I cut it off and stamped the same text with a tiny alphabet stamp (unknown).   Image and text stamped on Strathmore mixed media paper with 2nd impression of black Archival Ink, as I do not have any water resistant grey and I wanted it to be soft. Coloured in with ZIG clean colour markers and a waterbrush. 

I added the yarn before mounting on a grey panel, then added the scissor charm from the Norwegian company Korthobby. I think those scissors were fun to add to a sheep card :-)

The Korthobby challenge right now is 'Masculine & Metall from' and I hope they think my ram is manly enough to pass! I used grey and blue to make my card suitable for a boy's birthday. (For any Norwegian who might not know: 'Have a ball' basically means 'Ha det kjempegøy', and it's also a play with words since the ram is a ball of yarn).

I'm entering my card to these two challenges:

Korthobby: Maskulint & Metall
CASology: Soft

Thanks for looking!

Your choice of font really compliments the movement created by that funny little sheep 'ball', and the scissor charm and thread adds a fun touch of texture!
