CUTE CARD THURSDAY CHALLENGE NO. 75


My second card is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge No. 75 - New Beginnings! I have made this card for my husband's boss, whose wife has just had a baby boy, and thought this appropriate for "new beginnings". I have used a Whiff of Joy stamp called "Willow holding Baby", and this has been coloured with Twinkling H2O's. I have glittered the collar and sleeve of Willow's dress, and used a tiny silver gem, as a diamond on her ring. The image has been cut with an Oval nesty, and the edges distressed with a blue chalk eye ink pad, before layering on Blue cardstock. The backing paper is from a Papermania 6x6 paper pad called Exquisite, and to finish the card off - a stamped sentiment, pale blue organza ribbon, a charm and some blue gems from my craft stash.
