a cute congratualtions ...

stamps: baby blanket & all our dreams( sentiment only) from lili of the valley, sentiment from kanban clear stamp set
inks: memento (tuxedo black), archival (jet black) & promarkers
papers: bear necessities 8x8" paper pad from lili of the valley and nitwit collections, 4x6" white card blank, and tag ( not too sure what type I used, just choose one to fit your card or trim a bigger one down !!), and some craftwork cards digi cardstock
extras: pink satin edge organza & bakers twine

I made this baby card for a friend expecting a little girl soon. I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for the LOTV pink and white challenge, and decided to combine it with a fab Friday sketch. I stamped the baby onto the tag, coloured the face and shadows using promarkers, then paper pieced her outfit with the two coordinating papers. I then used a further piece of the checked paper as the matt for the card. the tag was added with some ribbon to finish. I chose a satin edged organza in the pink, and a twine to add different textures. the sentiment was stamped as a finishing touch. I think it keeps things clean and simple, with just enough detail in the soft patterned papers and ribbons to welcome the new arrival.

again I kept things simple, matt and layering a white sheet of card stamped with the sentiment onto a sheet of the soft patterned pink, (used on the paper piecing on the front)for the inside of the card.
