Sweet Little One

Happy Mother's Day! I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful day, I know I did! It is a little unusual for me to post on a Sunday but I made this card for a friend that just had a baby girl. I know most baby girl cards are done in pink but her favorite color is blue (like me) so a cutie in blue she'll get from me. I just love this Mo Manning image so I knew I wanted to use it. I also wanted it to be made with soft blues so I used these beautiful Bearly Mine Designs papers.

I do have to say I couldn't find a simple blue floral DP to use with Donna's papers so I made my own using my Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps. I drew out a diagonal grid in pencil and everywhere the pencil crossed and made the flower bunch. After I finished I erased the pencil lines and had my own DP. It only took me one try and I have to say I am happy with the way it came out. I also dotted the flowers with Stickles for some sparkle. I also put Stickles on her wings and along the edge of her dress IRL it really sparkles but in my pic it looks a bit dark and no sparkle.

Here are some wonderful challenges that fit my card
