Anyway I digress.....as usual! I just wanted to show you a card I made yesterday evening for a few challenges. I followed the lovely sketch from Sketch and Stash. Nothing like a good sketch to start off with. I coloured this lovely image from Pink Gem Designs. They have some beautiful images and they are a dream to colour with Promarkers. I used the lovely DP from Basic Grey and some peachy pink card for matting. This wasn't the colour of pink I intended to use but it seemed to go with the DP. I was a bit unsure about the wheels as I thought black would have been too dark with a pink and white pram. I suppose I could have used grey but this fawny sort of colour seemed to fit with the DP. The lovely lace is from Quixotic Paperie . Elaine has some lovely lace and I have this one in 3 different colours. Unfortunately you can't see it very well because the image is quite big and the picture is a bit wishy washy. I thought maybe I'd get a decent photo today as it was nice and bright...but no...it was too bright!! Not sure about the blue brads in the Prima flowers. The Basic Grey challenge is cream, pink and blue and although there are blue flowers in the DP I got it into my head that there was not enough blue in the card! I used nesties to cut out the image and the scalloped mat and a Stampin up edge punch to edge the pink card on the left.
I'm hoping to enter the following challenges with this card:-
Sketch and Stash :- Sketch and new stash - new Pink Gem image.
Stamp Something :- New somethings - new image, new baby card.
Basic Grey :- Basic Grey DP and cream, pink and blue.
Cupcake craft challenge :- Celebration.
Charisma Cardz :- Celebration.
Secret Crafter :- New beginnings.
Paperplay :- New beginnings.
Stamping for the weekend :- New beginnings.
By the Cute and Girly :- New - new stamp, new baby.
Fussy and Fancy :- New - new stamp, new baby.
Daring Cardmakers :- New beginnings.
I hope I've got all these right and that I'm in time. Maybe it would have been more smart to post this in the afternoon after all! Not to worry, I enjoyed making the card and it's always useful to have a spare new baby card in the house. I'll go and see if I've done everything right to enter these challenges.
