New Beginnings

Hi Bloggers,

Happy New Year!

Today I'm sharing this card with you -

The image is Lili of the Valley Baby Blanket. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels Twelve and cut a mat out of pink card which I edged with my white Inssentials pen.

The papers are all from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons and were arranged as per the layout at Sketch Saturday this week.

I added some ruffled Vintage Ribbon in pink and added a tatty bow using 3 lengths of the same. I also added a button from my stash with some baker's twine threaded through.

The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Double-Ended Tag die and cut another tag out of pink card. I cut the pink tag in half along its length and added it to my sentiment tag to create a mat.

I finished the card off with some pearls.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
Sketch Saturday
Allsorts Challenge - New Beginnings
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Make It Monday #69
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - New Beginnings
