Welcome Millie

In my last post here I included photos of my two Granddaughters Freya and Millie. Millie is the youngest and was born in September - here is the card I made to mark the occasion.

The image is so gorgeous and is by Lili of the Valley.  Its stamped with Versafine and embossed then coloured with distressed inks and I added lots of Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the balloon.  The background (sky) is also Distress Inks.  The letters are from two different sets of dies and they are cut from white card coloured with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and the same ink was used to colour the mat and the base card.  Some shiny stones were added and two corners rounded with my corner chomper.

I would like to enter this into the Craft Barn Challenge which this time is 'something that could be a world record'.  We can interpret this any way we like so my interpretation is the 'world record' pride and excitement I have for Millie and Freya and their lovely Mum, Sarah and also the 'world record' cuteness of the girls!

Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it so much and your comments are just so lovely to read!

Have a fabulous weekend and take care! Christine xxx

A beautiful, sweet card for a beautiful new granddaughter, Chris. Looking at your previous pictures, they definitely deserve the world record for cuteness; and you are right to be proud. Jx
