Baby Bunting and Some Reminders

Popping in with a card that I was asked to make for a new baby called Rose.  I stamped and coloured the matinee jacket and fussy cut it, then rummaged in my stash for the wire coat hanger.  While rummaging I found the letter discs which have been in my stash forever.  One of my New Year's resolutions is "Don't Hoard It - USE IT!", so I'm using it.

I've used a layer of tissue paper behind the stamped lace panel, and threaded the letters onto cord, finishing off with two lace roses.

I'm entering this into Papertake Weekly Get In Shape (use 3 or more different shapes on your card - square, circle, flower, hanger, jacket)

and Inspiration Emporium Fresh Start.

A few reminders for you:

You've still got a few days left to enter the Mixed Media Card Challenge, where the theme is NEW with an optional element of tissue.

Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge has got a fabulous prize package for the January challenge: Take A Stamp.

There's also a blog hop with 12 chances to win a substrate package AND some original artwork from the design team.

  4. Beautiful, Shirley...a perfect card for a baby named Rose! The letters are sweet, and that baby jacket! Absolutely adorable...I'm wondering if this might be a 'peek' at something new you've designed. If, wow and wow! Soooo darling! Rose's parents will love this; a keepsake to treasure...

  5. It's beautiful, It's unique. It's totally baby girl. And it's hand made charm is something to be cherished and treasured for years to come and will likely be passed down from generation to generation!
