Happy Fall!

I had a great afternoon of crafting today.  It is so much fun just to relax and create.  I made a card this afternoon combining two very different sets from Doodle Pantry.  The sheep is from a set called Heart Sheep and the sentiment is from the set Pumpkin Birdie.  I am happy with how it turned out.
As you can see in the photo below.  This is how the Heart Sheep stamp looks.  The sheep is throwing hearts up in the air and sitting in a pile of hearts.  Well, I needed fall leaves.  So I colored all the hearts with green so I didn't have to worry about the white showing through.  I then punched out a ton of leaves and started gluing.  It turned out great.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Sentimental Sunday - Humor
2 Sisters - Fall
All Sorts - Layers  (of leaves)
One Stop - No floral embellishments
Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards - Down on the farm (if I had a farm I would want sheep like these)
Raise the Bar - Fall
Just Inspiration - Photo - Fall
The Perfect Sentiment - An occasion, an animal, and a sentiment
Hope this made you smile today.  Maybe even gave you an idea of how you alter your stamp sets.

I love seeing alternative creations with stamped images and this is a very clever Fall use of this fun sheep. Love that pile of leaves he is jumping in and your perfect papers, ribbon and little pumpkin.
