Just the words

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are focusing on words, so just a sentiment on your card and no image.  We are sponsored by My Creative Classroom for this challenge, stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see the rest of the design team's creations.

I was messing about a few weeks back with the cute little baby feet die I won on the Marianne Design challenge #101 and together with some other bits and pieces by Marianne Design I created this card .. .. and then saw it was going to be perfect for the challenge!  The colour is looking rather grey on my screen, it's a proper baby blue in real life.

And here is the card, a small square (still using up the envies) and as well as cutting out the feet from silver card, I cut the nappy pins, swirls and little ducky too.  The flowers I cut from handmade paper then inked the edges, more of the blue chalk ink that's gone a bit grey but matches the lavender grey coredinations card I used to mat and cut the fronds.  The text I stamped and then cut out with a pretty circle, inking the embossed areas and the inner circle with the chalk ink. I found little snips of satin ribbon to tie up the pins and buttons to finish things off.

Here's the list of Marianne Design bits and pieces on this card:
Hello Sweet Baby paper PB7041 gingham in the background and flower design for the buttons
Mulberry paper RB2219 for the flowers
vintage lace stars JU0906
text is clear stamp CS0889
embossed faux stitching LR0161 around edge of gingham paper then inked to highlight
circle die LR0168
baby feet LR0305
nappy pins LR0217
little duck cut from LR0307
silver leaf sprays LR0271
