New baby

   A new challenge begins today at Crafty Cardmakers and More with the theme new. As I said in my previous post, I have three nieces each expecting a baby next month so naturally I chose to make a 'new baby' card!
   I matted and layered paper from an old magazine onto core'dinations cardstock and white card. The Tatty Twinkles stamp called baby bouncer was coloured using Promarkers and placed behind  a square of core'dinations cardstock which I had cut out using the Westminster Tattered Lace die. I then attached it to the card and coloured the metalwork of the pram using a silver gel pen. The sentiment was created from the same set of stamps and matted onto core'dinations cardstock cut using a Spellbinders die. I then coloured a flower from Wild Orchid using Promarkers and attached it behind the sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Penny Black and More - one for the girls
   Ooh La La Creations - girlie
   Stamping Sensations - anything goes with a die
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
