Baby in Lemon

Welcome again - I am so glad you have called in!

This weeks releases from McMahon Five Design  include this vintage baby image, Sweet Baby Mine.

The image was coloured using chalks, and cut using a Nestie classic oval die, embossed, and the background sponged before removing the die. 

The image had lace gathered around the oval, which was mounted with foam dots over some panels embossed with the buds and vines folder.

The same lace was placed across the base of the card and prettied up with some pale green rhinestones.  Rhinestones were also placed at the base of the image.

The final touch was this bow tied with a wee piece of silver edged, iridescent ribbon.

The other Design team members have also created some beautiful cards - do visit them - the links are in my side bar.
