New Baby Girl

Good Morning Everyone

Well where did the weekend go?  I can't believe it is Monday morning already!  I have been good this morning so far and sorted all my paperwork out and had a bit of a tidy in my room although I still have to sort out my crafty bits and bobs!  I know that when I start it will take me all day so I keep putting it off!!! I have had a lovely weekend crafting, I have coloured in a few images for challenges and sorting out some design team work for future challenges that are coming up.  Here is a baby card I have made I might give this to one of a couple of friends who are expecting babies.

The base card is 8 x 8 pearlescent card to which I have added some borders I found in my stash.  I have taken pink card stock and holographic mirri card and cut them out using my Spellbinder dies.  The pink card has then been embossed using one of my new cuttlebug folders.  I stamped this lovely baby onto white card stock then cut it out to match the pink and holographic layers.  I have used my colouring pencils to colour her in.  Using chalk I have lightly shaded the area underneath her but it doesn't show up well in the photograph.  The ribbon is self adhesive which I positioned top right and bottom left.  I have added flowers from my stash and then using very fine ribbon threaded this through the buttons and tied.  The gingham ribbon I have tied into a bow and placed at the top left.  This card has been made using the sketch from Totally Papercrafts.

Thank you for stopping by Today
