New arrival


Morning everyone, what a rotten day! Haven't even got daylight here yet and it's 8.45! I am here today with a little baby card to share with you. Well maybe not little its actually an 8x8 inch card! My daughter in law just became an aunt recently and she is super excited about it. So I had to make a card for her and one for her Mum who just became a Granny for the first time too. So my favourite all time baby image (well one of them lol) had to be used.

Image - Pink Gem which I did some paper piecing with
Papers - Digi papers, embossed card from Craft Style
Embellishments - I used two ribbons for this one. A lovely stripe organza in lilac and a piece of white organza to make the double bow. You can find both ribbons HERE.
Punched hearts, spotty brad
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
A Gem of a Challenge - new beginnings
Papertake - anything goes
Inky Impressions - anything goes
Unique Crafters - new beginnings
A & T Emerald Faeries - celebrations
Crafty Calender - what's new
4 Crafty Chicks - ribbons and bows

The photo is a bit dark unfortunately and as it was collected almost immediately I can't get another shot of it.
Hope you have a nice Monday.
