WPlus9 Unforgettable New Grandparent card

Hello everyone,

Welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too

Simply Create Too

where our theme for this time is 'for a precious child'.

Some close friends have just had their first grandchild and I am thrilled to little mint balls for them so I created this card:-

I made the mats with Lil'Inker stitched square dies and stamped little hearts on the pale pink layer with sweet blush ink. The cute elephant and balloon are from the WPlus 9 Unforgettable set and they were coloured with Copic markers and a coat of WOS glitter on the balloon. I finally tried out my Silhouette Cameo sketch pens for the 'to the proud Grandparents' sentiment  and finished it off with a Congratulations die cut from Paper Smooches, but I dotted the i with a little heart instead of the dot. Don't you just love it when you can mix and match all your supplies? I forgot to take a photo, but I decorated the envelope with the SSS Envelope sentiments and you can just see part of it behind the card.

Why not pop over to the Simply Create Too blog to see some more inspiration from the team, and join in with us this time. We have been getting lots of gorgeous entries and we love looking at your entries.

Thanks for stopping by
