Paper Smooches new baby card

Hello everyone,

It's a dull, damp day here today so I am trying to avoid reorganizing my craft room by making a card and even more mess :) I'd like to offer a warm welcome to Tracy of Tracy's Treasures, who is joining us as a new follower this week. Tracey loves scrabooking and card making, and can even offer lots of home improvement advice which I could do with around here.

My blogging friend Darnell is guest designer for Addicted to CAS this month and she inspired me to join in.

The codeword is texture so I came up with this CAS card

I used the fabulous Paper Smooches set 'Plus One' to stamp the little pram. I embossed it in black to add a first bit of texture and then I coloured it with Copics. I thought it looked a little plain, so I added the smiley face to add to the cuteness, and I then grouped a selection of sentiments from the set and stamped them in black. I stenciled a few little hearts with red ink through a Heidi Swapp stencil, and when it had dried, I embossed the panel with the Papertrey Ink Linen Impression Plate to give more texture.

To finish the panel off, I replaced the stencil and added some clear texture paste to the hearts to to give them more depth and shine.

I'd also like to enter this into
