Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?! My boss discovered that she has become an auntie again this week, a baby brother (as yet unnamed) has arrived for her niece, Isabella, so she asked if I would make a card for her to send to her brother and his partner (like I needed to be asked twice!).
And the card I have created fits perfectly with three of this week's challenges:
Creative Card Crew - New Beginnings
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - New Beginnings
Cute Card Thursday - Out With The Old
I simply adore this LOTV Baby Blanket stamp, I have used it soooo many times in the last year. Image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Bristol Board and then watercolour painted in Tim Holtz Distress Inks. To qualify for Cute Card Thursday you have to use old papers etc, and these papers definitely fit the bill - they are from a DCWV Stack that I must have had for about four years. The card stock is Coordinations and of course I used my trusted Nestabilities on the Cuttlebug for those perfect circles. The sentiment is also LOTV. Buttons and DMC embroidery thread from stash and finished off with Pebbles Inc Candy Dots.
Here's a close up of the little fella:
