Baby Girl Arrival

What is it with computers? Yesterday I was plodding through at a snails pace, stopping to make a cuppa while a picture loaded and as for trying to leave comments on anyone's blog - well forget that!  And then on top of it all the new ink cartridges for the printer aren't being recognised and it still says there's no ink .. .. argh!  I was so looking forward to printing off pretty papers and adorable Wee digi images to play with today .. .. but no go. So I'm at a loose end, the pc is loading pdq and already I've gotten through all the new pictures on Pinterest, checked my emails and even managed to comment on a couple of blogs .. .. long may it last, but I have my doubts!

I do have a card to share with you - a flat baby design, not that the baby is flat .. .. the card is, so it's postage friendly.  The image is another from the baby sheet by Viva Decor My Paper World that came from Cuddly Buddly, and the papers I've used to put the card together are also scraps of CB digi designs - I am being frightfully good using up my scraps! And, as I took the picture under the light you can see the sparkly areas I went over with my Sakura Stardust pen.

Here's the card, a small square scallop from my stash with two layers of paper stuck down flat.  I dragged a pale green ink pad around the edge of the bottom layer as there's green in the pattern, then added faux blanket stitch with a white pen on the pink dotty layer.  The text is an old one from my stash and the little fussy cut bow is from another MPW set.  The buttons are cut from Marianne Design set LRO188 glued on top of each other and finished with a tiny satin ribbon knot so they are flat on the back and easy to stick down flat on the card - should go through the narrow slot at the post office, I hope.  I haven't decorated the inside yet as I need to print off more paper, if I can ever get the machine to work, but will probably add the bottom layer inside with a white oval to write on - keep it simple and flat!

Now for challenges I can enter with my baby card: Oldie but a Goodie and Moving Along With The Times both have a new beginnings theme, perfect!
