De-bossed Daisies for Baby


This is what I would call a rescue card.
The background started off as a patterned paper that was embossed and then inked - the result was less than pleasing!!

I went to biff it, turned it over, and the pink ink was showing through the de-bossed side.  Perfect!! The only addition was some clear Kindy Glitz to some of the centres.

The focal point is a freebie from Bird's Cards, I painted the words with Inka Gold Gold paint, and coloured the pram/stroller with Prismacolor Pencils.  I was able to die cut the image with a circle die - not a deliberate sizing, but I was very glad it worked perfectly!

Added more clear Kindy Glitz to the dots, 

and mounted it onto the debossed paper, added a lush pink organza ribbon, and then onto the pink base.  
I loved the finished card, despite the rather shaky start.
