I'm enjoying the weekend, hanging out with my daughter and we're celebrating the news that one of her oldest friends has just had her first baby, a boy! We spent some time yesterday shopping for cute baby clothes and this morning I made a card for her using stamps from my stash - the Bundle of Joy Papertrey Ink stamp set, and some snippets of card from my scrap box.I used the colours from the Color throwdown challenge which was to use these colours
and I came up with this card
I didn't have the exact colours but I used PTI spring rain, aqua mist and lemon tart. I paper pieced the baby shawl, added a little star to it, and embossed the sentiment in white onto the blue card before cutting a a banner tail onto it. Snippets of stripey DP and some extra stars finished it off.
I'd like to enter this into the
Shopping our stash challenge which was to paper piece, and
My Besties Challenge Clean and simple, and
Simon Says Monday Challenge which is journey - a birth is a long journey for that stork!!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
