Welcome Little One!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

It's been a few days since I've posted. I have been hard at work gearing up for the MFT Release on the 1st...can't wait for you to see the new goodies!!

One of my dear friends welcomed a little boy last week. I made this card for her using the DARLING a la modes in Oh Baby! from My Favorite Things! I colored her with Copic Markers and the bow on the teddy bear was paper pieced with one of the patterns I used on my card, Stella & Rose Hattie, and I popped it up with Foam Tape.

I used this past week's Sketch Challenge on SCS for my layout, SC325. I must admit...this sketch was a real challenge (lol) for me...those triangular pieces were a pain! I really love how it came out though, so I am glad I pushed through it!

I opted to not put a sentiment on the front, but rather, added an embellishment created with the Die-Namics Hearts A Plenty Die and the Die-Namics Button Quartet Die. I added a bit of Baker's Twine through the cardstock button.

For the inside, I stamped this cutie again, this time in Memento London Fog, and added the sentiment, "Welcome Little One". A simple border created with the Die-Namics Small Scallop Border Die, and of course, some more Baker's Twine, complete the card. I did add machine stitching to all the layers.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
