Baby Card


After getting some wonderful inspiration from my blogger friend at Cards2Cherish (Thanks Pat!), I found a design for my first Tilda baby card. It came from Hanna at Hannas Hobbyblogg, the very talented 13 year old from Sweden with the most beautiful blog and cards. Here is a link to her sketch---check out her gorgeous cards while you are there!

Most of my papers were scraps, or unidentifiable papers, but the key was PINK! I added a little butter yellow for accent--pink and yellow are such a cheery combination! The baby is done with Distress Ink and Prismacolor pencil accents. the ivory paper rose came from A.C. Moore, along with some buttons and trims from my stash. I did some stitching, and some distressing on the edges, and a little Stickles accents for a little sparkle! This card only took a couple of hours...some of the others take so much longer, but I love it! I have also entered this in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, "Mono Mania!"

Some days I spend too much time on the computer, surfing from one lovely blog to the next, and seeing all the beautiful cards and catching some fun tutorials. I hope to share more of those with you in the coming days.
Enjoy your day!
