Unconventional Baby Card

 Welcome

Yes, another CAS card - this time I was inspired by the January's Monthly  Challenge over at STAMPlorations, which is CAS  and stamps, and they provided a sketch to inspire too....  
what could a girl do with all that goodness to challenge her but make a card.


(Apologies for the 'blue' in this photo, I could not adjust it or re-take the photo)


Here is the image (S009 Bear from Kiwistamping), coloured with chalks, and sentiment (from Montarga), and close up of the bakers twine bow.


I decided I did not like just the silver embossing,  so applied some masking and silver sprayed the narrow panel ... very heavily.


and I love the finished product!!

  7. This looks like very finely done hand embroidery, and is so pretty & delicate. It's beautiful in both colorways, but I think the blue will have to be my favorite. What a perfect card for parents & a new baby! TFS & Hugs
