Welcoming a New Baby

My cousin's daughter, Taryn, is expecting her first child.  I whipped up this card for the baby shower last weekend and I'm just getting to posting.  I'm off today to work for Heartfelt Creations at the Phoenix CK convention.  I'm a little giddy that little 'ole me gets to work for them.  Here's the details:

  • The patterned paper flags were made from MME's The Sweetest Thing- Tangerine papers.  
  • The sentiment was stamped in black Archival Ink and is stamped with a Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter Female Sentiments stamp.
  • The image is stamped onton watercolor paper using black Archival Ink using my Crafter's Companion Two Bad Mice stamp.  
  • I colored the image with my Distress Markers using the watercoloring technique- Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, and Worn Lipstick. 
  •  The scalloped circle was cut from a coordinating piece of patterned paper using my Spellbinders Lacey Circles
  • The background is a piece of embossed, textured cardstock from the stash.
  • The ribbon is a small scrap leftover from a old project.
The soon-to-be mama was pleased.  This will be the fourth or fifth great-great grandchild for my grandma.  I'm feeling particularly nostalgic.  My son graduates high school next May and I find myself praying to God that we might celebrate that special occasion with both my grandparents.   May God make it so.  In the meantime, I'm going to try to sell some Heartfelt Creations product over the next two days.  If you are in the area, stop by and say hi!
