New Baby for a new Year

Hello and Happy new year to you all Sorry for my absence over the Christmas festivities have got loads to share with you but was off my feet with a spell of vertigo again grrrrrr
Anyway enough about that I am thrilled to be back sharing another card for Mo Manning (links below please join us)
For my card I have an 8x8” card blank and my theme is new baby as my MiL has asked me to make one for a friend’s daughter who is due any day now. I think Mo does the most adorable baby images and this is my first time using this image (baby girl on a blankie again link below)

The papers I used are from Pixel Scrapper these are my 2nd go to place after polkadoodles for papers you get 8 free and there are hundreds to choose from.
I have distressed them but not inked the edges then added some corrugated card which I painted with starlight paints hot pink and dusty rose. Then I embossed with Wow embossing powder.

As I said the image is by Mo Manning and I have coloured her with a mix of Pablo and polychromo pencils. The inked the edges with spun sugar distress ink I also added this to the edges of the sentiment.

To embellish the card I die cut some flowers they are meant to be chrysanthemums but I decided to leave them flat and added a flat backed gem to the centre. I also added a fussy bow with a pink glass dummy added to the centre.

To finish the card I made the insert in my usual style adding the black and white image to the insert and verse on other side.
I do hope you like it and I will see you very soon with more makes.

This is a card after my own heart... Just love the distress effect! New babies are far from straight forward when they come into our world and I think you have captured it beautifully.

Hugs, Kristy
