Welcome Felicity

Afternoon, its getting so cold here I can hardly feel my fingers and that is with the heating on!!! Brrrrr…. can't wait for the summer to come back!!! Anyway I'm here to share with you today a card I made for my sister to give to fiancĂ©s brother and wife when their beautiful little bundle arrived a few weeks ago.  I have seen pictures of her and she is so so so tiny… makes me broody!! 

Anyway back to the card, now this gave me a reason to pull out one of the all time favourite images - Bambino available here.  This is one of my all time favourite images to colour up, you can add as much or as little as you like to the image and it always looks so adorable!

Now it did take me slightly out of my comfort zone, I have been sticking to 6x6 cards recently, but this one is a 6x8 , thankfully the papers I used were 12x12!! All the papers were from my local craft shop - I layered each paper onto pink card stock just to add some depth to the card.  

The image was colours with copics;
E50, E51, E53, E21, E11
R20, R22, R24

The brads I used have been sat in my stash since the first craft show I went to…. and that was over 6 years ago - I suppose I have never found the right creation for them!!  Then there is the ric-rac… again that has been in the stash for some time!! The flowers were all from my stash, I believe most of them are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  All the text was cut on my cameo - she is one amazing too you know!! 

I am so please with the way she turned out and I know she was loved by the recipients!  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;


Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope to see you again soon :) If you have a moment I would love to know what you think
