welcome new baby

Here's another mixed media card I've made following the "New" theme of the challenge #7 at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. Babies are definitely new. And life changing :)

Used pink ink and Aha Arts Border and Pattern to stamp my cardbase before adding a layer of the "optional challenge element", crumpled pink tissue paper (using a thin layer of Multi Matte Medium). Smushed pink ink onto my craft sheet, added a dollop of metallic embossing paste, mixed and stencilled a few random hearts onto my card. Die cut a balloon from PP and softened it down a bit by generational stamping white pigment ink circles onto it using SSS Lots of Dots.

Then I stamped "welcome" with a tiny alpha set and a bit of one of the borders from the Aha Arts set to draw a bit more attention to the "welcome". Added the stacked "baby" die cut and some gold thread and voila! Now we just need a baby girl in the 'hood!

The challenge is open thru the 25th. Remember, TEXTURE, DIMENSION, and TECHNIQUE make for a mixed media card. Join us, wont't you?

I'm joining the Happy Anniversary party over at The Card Concept #26. With my baby card. Go figure. But those soft pinks of the bouquet scream baby girl! I'm hanging out in the mixed media corner with the new DT members ;) Congrats to all on a successful year.
