Baby card

Hello again! I've not been doing much crafting over the past few days .. .. after a visit to the doctors last Friday I've found another prescription med that doesn't agree with me - I'm better off not going!

Anyway, yesterday I was feeling like having a play and planned to create a card for the LIM challenge for baby creations using the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  Well that idea didn't quite come off as I'm a bit 'more than less' and I couldn't get my heart CB folder through my CB machine to get the right 50/50 embossing split under my horizontal layer.  Plus there are 3 little dangly bits on the sketch and I've only got 2 baby shoes, well 3 would just be too weird!

Being good, I've created a base 5" square card using up some old pale plum SU! cardstock and dipped into the ream of pearl paper .. .. that's going to last me an awfully long time!  The baby shoes are a die from Joy Crafts, the rest are from Marianne Design, and I finished off with little pearls from my stash.

The Marianne Design dies I used are:
Baby word - LR0217
butterfly - LR0153
fancy rectangle - LR0117
and the faux stitching around the edge of the embossed layer and my base I've created with LR0161.

Divas by Design have an anything goes theme this week and at Fab 'n' Funky it's all about words so I can enter my card with both of them instead!

    Sorry to hear the doc's given you even more meds that have managed to upset you. Isn't that just typical! Best staying away from them I think lol!
