Welcome Little One...

Hey there... think I'm finally getting back in the swing of blogging.  Here it is Wednesday and I have a card to post!!  This one is for the current Flourishes release week challenge of New Year, New Challenge.. to make a card using either something to do with time (like father time) or a baby.  I went with the baby theme because I really don't have anything time related in my stamp collection.  For my card I used some Layers of Colors stamps because I don't have any Flourishes stamps that would have fit the bill (insert sad face).  The layout of the card is courtesy of Sketchbook Saturday and the super talented Chupa.


For my card I used some of the final remaining sheets of paper from my My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2 Sunshine 6x6 pad.  I love the papers in that pad so I'm going to have to make sure I pick up another one here soon.  I chose to use a light aqua striped paper, as well as a black damask paper.  The ink is SU!'s new Pool Party (which is a pretty darn good match to PTI's Aqua Mist!).  Lots of diecutting one this one, too.  I used Spellbinders Labels 16 dies, plain and scalloped circle dies and a fancy tag die.  The ribbon is some yummy May Arts black crinkle ribbon.   The Layers of Colour stamps I used are "Flower Child" and "Starflower Frame".

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & SU! Pool Party; PP:  My Mind's Eye Sunshine; Stamps:  Layers of Colour; Spellbinders dies; May Arts black crinkle ribbon; white crochet ribbon; EK Success punch; Ink:  SU! Pool Party; Ranger Old Paper DI

Hello Rosie
I was only just thinking today how it is taking everyone awhile to get back into creating; me included.
I am pleased you are back in the swing, having DT obligations will certainly inspire you, it must be so exciting.
I digress as per usual,I think your baby card is gorgeous, it is very me with the lace and the shabby feel. Your interpretation of Chupa's sketch is perfect.
