Hey, what's new?

This week on Cute Card Thursday we want to see something new. I've created a card for a new baby with a new stamp from LOTV - just adorable and depending on the colours could be for a boy or girl, plus it comes with a darling sentiment too. I've stamped with brown Momento then coloured with Copics: blues B21 and B23, soft pink R0000 and R00, green G40 and G82, then creamy shades E50, E51, E53, E81 and E000, plus skin tones E00, E01 and E21.

I've used another piece of the freebie Nitwits paper with edges inked in Sahara Sand Versamagic chalk ink. The pretty border is a Martha Stewart punch and I've added a length of blue velvet ribbon. The corners are a Quickutz die and the floral embellishments are various Marianne dies plus pearl buttons for the centres: LR017 for the layered flowers, LR0106 for the blue leaves and LR0156 for the skeleton leaves. The lacey mat behind the text is from the LR0124 Norwegian Ice Star set.

Sorry for another wonky picture, I had to take it under my lamp and sneezed again!

A few challenges I can enter:
Paper Sundaes theme is for something old, something new - my stamp is new but the rest of the stuff is old (especially the pearl buttons).
Sweet Stampin' would like to see new beginings as would By the Cute And Girly.
Papertake Weekly have an anything goes challenge with the twist of using something new, and the Fab'n'Funky blog also have a new theme challenge.

I've been working on another little card for the new Lili's Little Fairies challenge, but after Jacqui's lovely comment about this card, I'll enter this one and share the one I'm working on at a later date.

  9. The colours are just delightful & I love the way the pearls all help to accent the polka dots in the image. So much lovely texture & interest in this one. I do think LOTV & you go together. Hope that cold improves.
