Nursery Rhymes at Double Trouble Challenge

Hello everyone, I have one more card to share for my guest designer spot at Double Trouble challenge where the Trouble Maker chose the main theme of  "a favorite nursery rhyme" from the Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes as the main theme. In addition to the main theme, there is an option to also include a heart or the words heart or love set by the Twister Sister.  If you have included both of the above on your project, it will also be eligible to share with their collaborating partner, this time it is  Heart's Quest Challenge

I was recently looking through a box of old Whimsy rubber stamps searching for a stamp for another project (to be shared soon), when I came across this cutie here and knew it was going to be the stamp for this challenge. I selected the nursery Rhyme "Mary had a little lamb" and included both Mary and her little lamb.

I've had this stamp from my time as a Whimsy DT member many years ago and it is no longer available in rubber but illustrator Sylvia Zet now sells many of her images in digi format through Whimsy, including Mary

My card is very CAS, I stamped with Versafine Onyx and colored with Distress inks and Zig Clean Color markers. The sentiment is also retired from Whimsy Stamps. To "ground" the image I used a new grass border stamp from Colorado Craft Company. I just wish I had not stamped it with black ink as it stands out too much.. 

All details about the challenge are at a glance above. I am sure the ladies at Double Trouble would love for you to join in!
