New Baby Card

I bought this Mariann die a few weeks ago and although I cut out the frames as soon as I got it, I hadn't got round to putting them together, I don't know why, because I had so many ideas for them!

It rained all day yesterday, and I can't think of anything worse than going out in the rain when there's no need, so, an ideal opportunity for a 'play day'. DD needed a card for a friends new baby and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I have used my PSX Moon Baby stamp, cut with nesties and coloured with Promarkers. I glittered the moon with Glamour Dust.  The frames, swirl and layers were all sponged with TH Distress Ink - Tattered Rose. I added some white pearls and a couple of sparkly flowers from stash.  I added a label on he back for the greeting.

I love the look of these frames made into an easel card and have loads of ideas for them, so watch this space as they say!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
   Totally Gorjuss - Pearls & Swirls
   CES challenge - Sparkly flowers
   Challenge Up Your Life - Circles
   Craft Your Days Away - Monochrome
   Crafty Cats challenge - Fancy Folds
   The Crafty Pad challenge - New something - Baby

Thats it for now, enjoy whats left of the weekend. 

I hope you like what you see, if you do, please leave a comment and I will come and visit you.
