Family Love


I had a card to make for a couple who just had their first baby and when I saw the lovely freebie digi over at Pollycraft I knew I would be using it. I used red and white for the combo, punched three layers for borders, ruffled the ribbon using my sewing machine and added some faux stitching as well. I followed a few challenges for this one.
1. Pollycraft - used their image and colour challenge
2. The Pink Elephant - followed their lovely sketch
3. Totally Gorjuss - monotone
4. Bee Crafty - favour colour and digi
5. Stamping Sisters in Christ - related to their scripture (I chose family, as a house is made special with the love of a family)
Image - Pollycraft
Medium - Promarkers, h2os
Papers - funkyfairies
Tools - fiskars punch, nestabilities
Embellishments - ribbon, sewing machine, charm
