A New Baby Girl :-)

A friend/colleague has recently had a bouncing baby girl and I made this card for her and her family ,,, this is baby No 4 ,,, she is a busy Mum !! :-)

I followed the lovely sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge and the optional extra is to use Blue and Green ,, sorry ,, but as much as I was tempted I think it just wouldn't have looked right somehow lol :-)

I have a couple of very cute HM stamps which are suitable for babies ,, and it took me ages to decide on which one !! In the end I let hubby decide, he thinks this Love Bunny is THE cutest :-)
I coloured the image with my trusty copics and glittered almost everywhere ,, oops ,, I forgot to stickle the little hearts ,, they are smothered now ,, so imagine them sparkly :-) the papers are Bo Bunny and SU Close to Cocoa,, all the edges are distressed with a fab TH tool and inked with Spun Sugar distress ink. The sentiment is from a Simon says Stamp sentiment set. I added a flower , a charm and some Dew Drops to finish.

Challenges :

Crafty Emma's Store,,,,,Baby Bonanza
Secret Crafter ,,,,,, Anything Goes
The Stamp Man ,,,,, Distress ,,, all the edges are inked and distressed :-)
Pixi Dust Studio ,,,,, Animals
Penny's Paper Crafty ,,,,, Anything Baby
Karber Weekly ,,,, Girls

thanks for looking :-) ,, don't forget to check out the candy at the top of my blog before you leave :-)
