New Baby Card

Been sooooo busy trying to get the challenge blog up and running that I'm a bit late blogging my card and I've still loads to do on the new blog - LOL!

I hate blogger - it always flummoxes me, why gadgets don't seem to co-operate.  Anyway the link is here and I'll be posting a welcome and then setting up a DT call soon feel free to join the blog and let me know if anything is wrong with it :D

The new Facebook challenge has started today in my group - click here to join.  There are freebies in my group and you can use discount code to get 10% off my images on Etsy by quoting SKIANDREA10

Today for my inspiration I've used Baby Feet.  They've been coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils and cut out with a Spellbinders die.
The design paper is from Maya Design, the piece I cut out with a Spellbinders die behind the image was distressed with a nail file (fine sand paper would work just as well).

I've doodled some borders with a biro around the image and the while card it's mounted onto.  I actually cheated a bit here.  I coloured the image, cut it out and then mounted in back onto the original coloured card, that's why you can see some coloured sections underneath the image :D

The sentiment was printed at the same time as the image and my finishing touches are two silver dragonfly charms, a couple of sequins and a few rhine stones to add a bit of bling.

Hope you like my new baby card
