Bloggers Challenge


For the Bloggers Challenge this week, we were to create a baby card......I have a (retired) SU set that I just adore-being that I have done some heirloom sewing in the past, the Christening gown is just so pretty..... It is called Buggies and Booties.

I stamped the image and the sentiment by first coloring the stamp with the Sahara Sand marker, then with Close to Cocoa. I stamped both images on Very Vanilla (SU) cardstock. The DP is Thoroughly Modern (SU) and the strip in the center is the flipside of the page on the front of the card. I added some baby tatting lace, dew drops and framed the image with Nestabilities in Sahara Sand and Soft Suede CS (SU). The ribbon is also retired SU.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Day!
