Welcome little one

I decided I would start to build my card stock again and as it's Spring and there are babies being born in the animal kingdom I decided to start with a baby card. I don't need a baby card as I don't know anyone having a baby so thought I'd make it a general baby card not gender orientated hence the colours.

I love this sugar nellie image it's just so super cute.I stamped it onto white card and coloured it with promarkers in peach, almond, putty, lemon, grey and pink and a touch of mint for balance.

I die cut it out using a stitched rectangle die from memory box but decided it was too long so I cut it in 2 halves to shorten it. I then used their alter star collage die cut into card and used this as a stencil and used spun sugar distress ink, after masking the coloured image.

I decided to use a peach pearlised base card and keep the card design simple and complete it with a die cut sentiment 'welcome little one' from poppystamps. I coloured it in lemon and then cut it out in the rectangle with the image on and inlay it.

I was quite happy with the results and now have a card in waiting should someone announce they have had a special delivery.

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

Just us girls -soft pastels

crafty catz - anything goes with a twist of animals

CAS on Sunday - stencil

AAA- CAS and use a stencil

Addicted to stamps -not a square(hope rectangles are ok)

CAS mix up - stamping,inlaid die and your choice(I choose stencil)

As you like it - favourite card shape
(I tend to gravitate to rectangle probably for ease and convenience and habit too)

Hi Julye. Your baby card is SO ADORABLE!! Love those adorable images and great colouring!! The stenciling in the background adds lots of depth and is so pretty. And I like the way your inlaid sentiment goes outside the box just a little. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

I hope you get to give this baby card soon because it's much too sweet to languish in a box! Love the soft coloring with the pretty, yellow, inlaid sentiment! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!
