I just love this Jellybean

A while ago I won this image from Crissy Armstrong all for being one of the first 12 entries into one of her challenges. I have to say when I was given the choice of all her images my first thought was jellybean, as I have had this cutie on my wish list as a rubber stamp since it's release and now as a digi though digi's aren't my first choice I can have him or her as the case maybe any size.

I decided although I have made one baby card with my LOTV stamp I got for christmas I would make another generic baby card(will add the appropriate boy/girl sentiment as needed), although I have to say I would be quite happy to receive this as a birthday card too and I suppose when a baby arrives that technically is a birthday celebration too but I guess not many celebrate their 0 birthday as we are all too busy saying congratulations to the parents and grandparents and poor baby just gets a welcome. I suppose this card would be good for all of the above just by adding the appropriate sentiment and even a young child's birthday card too. Sorry waffling again.

My card well you have all gathered it's a Crissy Armstrong digi which I coloured with promarkers using ice grey 1 and 2 and blossom for his cheeks. I gave him a teagreen aura and then cut him out. The papers are pearlised base which I embossed using a fiskars plate and some tissue paper that was in a bundle of Christmas gift wrap from Costco 3 years ago and I still have loads left. I love how it just has odd bits of twinkle glitter on and they do spread everywhere so there is still glitter all through my house, but then again the red star confetti I put on my Christmas table keeps appearing everywhere too and I vacuum every other day , but I digress again.

The ribbons are from my stash, I think the organza one across the card came from hobbycraft and the white satin was a roll from JTF. The flowers were some I won in candy and the button from the button box my Gran had and gave to mum and when I started sewing I inherited so who knows how old the button is.

I have to say even though I embossed the paper once I had decided which papers to use the card came together really quickly and I do love how clean and simple it looks and that Jellybean is firmly front and centre stage. Now what will I use this card for?

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Pixie dust studio-use 2 or more ribbons
Cooking it up with Katie-a ribbon,a button and an animal

Hi there, Julye, and welcome to Opus Gluei! I think this card is fantastic.

The image makes me smile, it is so sweet and your coloring of it is great, but it's also the care in putting Jellybean surrounded by such soft, gentle cute embellies that makes it PERFECT!

(I hear you with regards to the glitter, it is everywhere and makes the rest of winter sparkly!)

Thanks again for participating, I hope you come back for more challenges with us!
