TUIC March Challenge

Fellow Tangled Up In Creativity Blog Group member, Dawn, is hosting this month's challenge.  We had to create a card inspired by the saying, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."  Ribbon also had to be used on the card.  Here is my entry.  The lion image is by Inkadinkado and I made the charm.  The charm was made by stamping the lamb image with Stazon ink onto a piece of #6 recycled plastic (carryout container) and then when heated with the heat gun (shrinks like polyshrink).    

Here's a close up of the charm:
I've also been working on a swap:
Each member of the swap group was sent an image and had to come up with a card.  The image Michelle sent was 3 Easter eggs in a row with a hatching chick in the middle.  I colored and cut it apart.  This layout was inspired by one I had seen in a magazine.  It was fun.  

Thanks for looking!
