Baby Boy

Good afternoon from a VERY wet North East. Oh boy has it been raining today, perfect day for sitting by the fire making cards. Hope you have better weather where you are. I have been beavering away making cards for work collegues again, but a lot of them are based on decopage so not really suitable for challenges, and some repeats of cards I have already posted.
Today's card is for a friend and features a beautiful image from Mo's Digital Pencil 'Baby boy s'.

The image is cut with Spellbinders Grand Circles and a Grand Scalloped large circle. Ribbon, lace and pearls from my stash.  Butterfly is a Memory box Vivienne with backing of rainbow mirror board, also added this to main card and image. Charm is from Mei Flowers. Flowers from WOC. Corners are a Magnolia die and leaves from Cheery Lynn.
Backing paper is from Nitwit papers (I went mad on Friday and bought another 14 sets while they were on special) and Core'dinations cardstock.

I have coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils, and added distress ink to the edges.

the inside reflects the front

I am entering 

Thank you for looking, hope you like this cute baby boy

Hi Eileen, What a really pretty card and I love your skin colouring, beautiful and soft, just like a real baby. I am loving how you are now the first person to read and comment on my blog every week, I really look forward to hearing from you and it is so nice to know that at least one person out there is reading what you write without having to enter a competition first!! Weather been much better here today and hope it carries on tomorrow as the garden is getting a bit desperate!
Have a great week,
take care

Hi Eileen, I won a challenge last week and the prize was 10 Pounds at Crafter's Companion UK. It would cost more to ship here than it's worth. I'd like to see it put to good use so I'd like to give it to you! My email address is - email me and I'll give you the code.

Eileen said...

Thank you so much for thinking of me Kara. I have emailed you.
