Fleece Navidad!

My husband and I have many bilingual friends.  Ever since I saw a card with the sentiment "Fleece Navidad" this summer on Under a Cherry Tree I knew I wanted to use it on some Christmas cards.  I was also inspired by the sketch at Skipping Stones Design and Craft Spot by Kimberly encouraged me to make it a window card--my first!

The circle is from Graphically Speaking.  The scalloped circle is from Gypsy Wanderings.  The sheep is from Animal Kingdom.  I would have loved to have used a Peachy Keen face but the set I have that goes with this cart requires you to cut the sheep at 3" and that wasn't going to work with this sketch.  I ran the white parts of the sheep through the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and the front of the card through Swiss Dots.  I used some of my new metal accents for my i-rock.  I was a little disappointed at how glue oozed out from under these accents.  I haven't had that problem with the i-rock gems.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
