Oh Baby, Baby!! ...& A New Challenge Blog

Cooking, Camping & Crafting is planning to start challenges from mid March. So....she's looking for all kinds of  crafters to join her Design Team - as she says herself a well rounded group of people....Including card makers, scrapbookers, altered items etc.This card is my application, if you'd like an opportunity to join her team you'll find the details here 

My card is destined for a couple who are expecting their second son next month. Their first is six now and they didn't think they'd be able to have any more...so you can imagine how happy they are. I've used so many things I love on this, papers from my favourite collection, my new dies, the adorable image from Sugar Nellie, the sketch from Skipping Stones Designs (I'm so in love with this sketch I feel I may never use another ) and, last but not least my crocheted flowers - my latest obsession. I really enjoyed making the crocheted 'ribbon' to decorate my tag, and scattered a few pearls about too. 

Promarkers used -  Powder & Denim Blue, Canary Yellow & Mustard on the hat. For his skin - Tan, Oatmeal, Blush & Almond. They were as close to those Trina used as I had in my stash. 

I actually love this card so much that I'm going to have to make a few variations of it if I've any hope of parting with it when the time comes lol. 

I have to give a shout out to Mina and Trina both who coloured this image beautifully and I used as my guide to (hopefully) do it justice.
