Quirky layer it up and pile it on, 3d style!

I was late with my card, I have been having so many computer problems and this weekend my Son, Daughter in law and baby grandson came to stay, so babysitting was in order! The great thing was that my son was able to spend Friday evening and some of Saturday working on fixing my ailing computer - which still has problems. The bad news was that when I finished my card and took the photo I realised I didn't have any of the programs I needed to upload and trim it etc! So I spent time looking for the software I need to reload (oh this could take me some time), then thought of the phone! So the photo is courtesy of the phone so not as good as it could be, and I will some better photos on when I can.
Lyn set the challenge as her favourite, Lyn loves to use lots of layers and is very good at it! So we are to use layers and 3d as much as possible. The sponsor providing the images is Robyn's Fetish, and Digital Delights are giving one of the prizes. 
This image is called Ms Lamb Chop, and I didn't immediately think baby card (though it crossed my mind), once I had coloured the flowers and added layers of HOTP papers and a gorgeous grosgrain spotty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons the card just yelled out Baby Girl! I coloured the image with Promarkers, and cut out several layers of the lamb to decoupage it (I will take a better photo to show this soon) added some Stickles glue to the flowers (and having decided to do this today as I was trying to finish the card a few accidents were inevitable, so I had to reapply it a few times and it is very much wet in the photo), and die cut with Spellbinders dies. The sentiment is a Molly Blooms clear stamp that came with the Molly Blooms magazine and is stamped with Brilliance ink.
I need to buy another part for the computer, load the software back on and I know I have loads of people to visit from last Wednesday's WOYWW, and a few more, I just might get there before the next one!
