New Baby Girl


Is anyone else cold??  I'm frozen!

I just wanted to share with you all my first commission ... actually, calling it a commission sounds far to exciting. I was showing off the gift box I made the other week to people at work and one of my colleagues asked if I could make a card for her friend who is having a baby girl. So here it is:

The image is a new digi I bought especially for this card from the DigiStamp Boutique.  I also made a quick and simple tag to match it using the same image and pink scalloped circle as on the card with a quick eyelet and a spare piece of ribbon.

I've gone for some simple paper piecing - my new favourite technique!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pollycraft Monday - Favourite Things (Paper Piecing - my new favourite!)
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - New Beginnings
Do You Stack Up - Ribbons
Saturday Challenge - Ribbons
Sketch N Stash - Free Choice Sketch  (Number 75! + New Digi) -

edited to add:  oops I forgot to add the picture of the sketch I used!! My Bad - sorry!

Thanks for looking!
