New Baby Freya Card (and a Photo too!)

My little baby Granddaughter Freya was born recently and here is the card I made for my Daughter and Son-in-law.



The image and the phrase are by Lili of the Valley and I coloured the image with Promarkers.  The dies used are Spellbinders Labels Four, Petite Circles and Petite Scallop Circles and the ornate edges to the circle are made by using the small doily die from the Couture Creations Ivy Die set and cutting the die cut in half and laying it under each side of the scallop circle.  On my screen the check card looks blue but it is in fact purple - I hope that shows ok on your screen.  The purple stamping is done using Heliotrope Versacolour.    Here is a photo of Freya, she is so gorgeous!


This is a couple of hours after she was born.  I am one very  happy Grandma!!  I am still not getting much crafting done and am not getting round all your blogs.  Again I am so sorry!  Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it so much!  Take care.  Christine xx

Your card is so beautiful, Christine, but I'm sorry, it pales in comparison to that beautiful baby!! I don't think I've ever seen a lovelier baby just two hours old!!! ENJOY, it's the best!! Hugs, Darnell
