One of my neighbours just had a baby girl so this is the card I made for her and her DH to welcome the new arrival. It gave me the perfect excuse to use my new CB Roses ef - I REALLY love this folder - it's so pretty.
I also made it for the Ways to Use it Challenge WT119 of Scallops, and tried to get as many scallops on the card as I could. Here is the link for the deets: Forums at Splitcoaststampers Count all the different scallops on my card - even my ribbon AND the button has scallops (do the Hedgie's toes count as scallops?!) It was fun to challenge myself to get as many different scalloped elements on the card as I could.
The image was stamped with Memento ink and was coloured with Gamsol and Prismacolor pencils. I lightly added pink, blue and lemon I-Kan-dee pearlescent chalk around the image. The sentiment on the tag was stamped with Stazon ink and the tag was diecut with my CB and one of the CB Tiny Tags die set - although I did cut the end off to make it smaller to fit the sentiment better. I chalked around the tag and added some tiny lemon hearts which are the leftover punchies from my EK Success Arrows Border punch (they look like tiny hearts to me). I added some sparkle with Kindyglitz Crystalina to the flower petals, the hedgie's cheeks and the hearts on the tag.
Thanks for having a peek at my card!
P.S. Would love you to stop by my new Blog
