Baby Oh Baby

I know, I know, it is unbelievable that I have finished another card.

In a few weeks my friends  son and her daughter-in-law will welcome a baby girl to the family. I can't believe that I finished it ahead of time. I still have to make tags for the presents and I will try to make a little box for the baby shoes I bought. Hopefully I will get that done soon.

The image is from my dear friend Christina C. She probably doesn't even remember that she had stamped it for me. I have had it for such a long time. Thank you so very much Christina, I always loved this sweet image of the sleeping baby.

The cardstock is from my stash and I colored the image with Prisma Pencils. The sheer ribbon is from May Arts and the pink rickrack is from 'My Minds Eye' the Lush Collection. The Prima roses were off white and I spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist 'Cherry Blossom'. They look peachy in the picture but they did turn out pink. What do you think about the embossed borders and images? I just love them. It is from a brandnew PTI set called 'Night Night Moon' by Heather Nichols. I stamped them with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

On the inside I stamped another one of the borders and randomly stamped some of the single stamps and again embossing them. I computer generated the saying and cut the two layers with Nestabilities Labels #10. The pearls and the shoes are from my stash.

When I showed the card to my husband, he said he loved it but when he saw the inside he said, "Why didn't you write it in German?"....Daaaaaaahhhh, I guess I have become too americanized....lolololol

Thanks for dropping by and leaving such nice comments. I am off to hopefully work some more on one of my many unfinished cards.

  2. Wow Marie, this baby card is soooooooo cute! Your coloring is beautiful! I love how you did the border in white, and it carries through to the inside. Your friend's son and his wife will love this card! Great idea to color your flower with the Glimmer Mist! I'm so happy you are back to crafting! Hugs, Cami
