New Baby


Allsorts (15) - Sketch & Torn Edges

Penny Black (71) - Stitching

Cute Daisy May (26) - Blue & Green

Creative Inspiration (16) - Stitching

Cute Card Thursday (75) - New Beginnings

Stamping For The Weekend (13) - Anything Baby Goes

This card took me right out of my comfort zone. Why? Because I had to TEAR the paper, SHOCK! HORROR! I like the sketch we had to follow though and next time I use it I WON'T be doing any ripping and tearing. I chose to do the card in aqua green and pale blue and added faux stitching around the edges of the image.

Card Recipe

Stamp - Penny Black

Paper - Cute Daisy May

Buttons/Peel-Off - Stash

Thanks for looking.
