Baby Christmas





This card is for:-


1. Die Cut Dreams - challenge # 18 - Babies are us


2. Cupcake Crafts - week # 61 - Buttons and Stitching


3. Incy Wincy Designs - Challenge # 13 - Wildlife (any animal image)


4. A Spoonful Of Sugar - challenge # 73 - sketch


5. Lili Of The Valley - challenge # 38 - A christmas card for a child


6. Stamp Something - Bling it



I could not get this photo right, it has been a dull day today here. There's plenty of sparkle and silver on this card but it looks so dull in the photo. It has been done for a little baby girl I know for her 1st Christmas.


Die Cut Dreams has a theme of "Babies Are Us" and they are raising awareness for baby loss, so even if you don't do the challenge pop over and take a look for info. I have done a baby kitten angel image for a Baby's first Christmas, which the angel part seems quite apt for Baby Loss.


Cupcake Crafts want to see Buttons and Stitching, I have used a button in the centre of my snowflake and done some faux stitching around the image. Yes I gave it another go with buttons (boy do I hate using buttons on my cards).


Incy Wincy Designs requires a wildlife or an animal image and I have used the little kitten image.


A Spoonful Of Sugar gave a great sketch to use, and it's the kind you can use again and again.


Lili Of The Valley have done a Christmas card for a child this week.


Stamp Something said Bling It. well i've used glamour dust on the halo and wings, mirror card for matting everything, silver ricrac ribbon and bows, silver snowflake, a glamour dusted snowflake and finally silver thread for the button. So plenty of sparkle shimmers and shines.


Recipe:-


Stamps - Lelo stamp, Sentiment by computer,


Papers - Papermania naughty and nice, silver mirror board,


Colouring Mediums - H20's, Distress inks,


Tools - Sizzix snowflake, XCUT snowflake punch,


Embellishments - Button, silver thread, silver bows, silver Ricrac, Glamour dust,

It's a really pretty card,Tracy......lovely colours.....I always find it impossible to get the 'sparkle' to show up in photos as well.I wouldn't worry too much that someone with nothing better to do leaves pathetic comments.....what a sad life they must lead if they have nothing better than that to do!!!!
