Cute Little Thing

A friend of my daughter, Kim, became an aunt for the first time yesterday so I had an excuse to make a card for a baby girl...it's been all boys lately. When I first started making it, I was driven mad because it wasn't going the way I wanted it to - just didn't look like the picture in my head. Now, however, I am glad that I kept going because I am quite please with the result.




Ingredients:

Image: Forever Friends;
Medium: Promarkers;
Papers: Baby Powder, Hiccups, by Imaginisce (again);
Sentiment: 'Cute Little Thing' by Studio G Clear Stamps (99p for 5 sentiments - brilliant);
Tools: MS Lace Doily Border Punch;
Flowers: Large one - stash; Smaller one - Nutcrafters Stall at SECC (£1 per bag - brilliant again);
Other: Charm and Ribbon - stash; Card Candy - Craftwork Cards; Flatbacked Pearls - Kanban; Glamour Dust.

Challenges:
Friday Sketchers: Sketch by Jeanette;
Stamp Something: Something Cute;
One Stitch At A Time: As You Like It;
Papertake Weekly: Ribbons and Pearls;
Simon Says Stamp: Bingo (Punches/Die Cuts, Flowers, Gems);
Sweet Stampin Challenge: Clear as Mud.

That's it from me just now. Everybody is out again for a few hours today so I have a cake in the oven and am gonna make a card while I can. Thanks for stopping by

Hugs
Suzanne

Beautiful card Suzanne. I often make cards that don't turn out like I thought they would! But yours is such a sweet card, I don't what you had in your head but this looks pretty perfect to me.
