New Home!

Hello and welcome to my blog today!  Thank you very much for visiting me - I love it when you do and really appreciate any comments you are kind enough to leave.  A new baby card today.

***Spot the boo boo!  I published this and linked to all the challenges with New Home! as the title instead of New Baby!  I have left it as it is as I have already linked up - how silly I am!  Go on, you can laugh at me, I did!***

The image and the words are by Lili of the Valley. Using a scrap of white card. I stamped the gorgeous image in black Versafine and embossed with clear powder then coloured it in with my Promarkers - the background is coloured with a Promarker too.  The white spots on the baby blanket were added with a white pen.  I cut the image out with Stamplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Dies then used a larger die from the set to cut a layer in some left over yellow card.  I made a card base from blue card stock and dotted white pen around the edges to match the baby blanket.  I glued the layers together then used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen on the blanket and hearts and Glossy Accents on the balloon and stars.  The sentiment was stamped on more scrap yellow card then cut up, edged with black Promarker and added to the card.  I love this image and have used it several times for both baby girl and baby boy cards.

I would like to enter the following challenges :

Pixies Snippets Playground - use Snippets.
Penny Black and More - Something New.
Country View Challenges - Anything Goes.
Allsorts Challenge Blog - No Patterned Paper.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.

Thank you again for visiting me and I hope you are having a fabulous week!

Take care.  Christine xxx

Yes, I was wondering why it was called New Home! But it is a gorgeous card for a new baby and a lovely colour combo.

Someone prolly already said this, Chris, but, I mean, when you think about it, babies due leave the home of the womb to the New Home of the (in this case) basket! So you're good IMHO!! Baby and balloon are darling and I love how you did your sweet sediment!! Hugs, Darnell
