Sweet Baby

My daughter's sister-in-law recently had a baby, so I made a card to enclose in the gift I sent.  When I checked out The Shabby Tea Room, I found out the theme was "Tag--You're It," so I added a tag to my card in order to be included in this week's challenge!  I printed the words to "Rock-a-Bye Baby" on my computer, sponged the edges,  and then added some embellishments and a "Sweet Baby" tag.

Paper:  SU Green Galore, Pretty in Pink;  Debbie Mumm's Baby Girl patterned paper; Ink:  SU Blushing Bride; Punch:  SU Scallop Edge; Embellishments:  K & Co chipboard tag, dress, flowers, and hearts, gingham ribbon from Michael's, and SU button.

Old Meets New Happy Birthday

The challenge this week on The Shabby Tea Room is "Old Meets New."  I created a birthday card using some new Crate Papers, lace, and scrumpled seam binding. I sponged some Ranger Vintage Photo ink (stash) around the edges and used my Tim Holtz paper distresser (stash) to "shabby" the edges of the card.
I used SU's Well-Scripted birthday stamp for the sentiment and punched it out with my trusty Marvy Uchida scallop oval punch which I seem to used all the time!  I also used SU's Build-A-Brad to create a unique brad to go with the paper!

Stamp:  SU's Well-Scripted; Paper:  SU's Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla, Crate Paper's Prudence Collection; Ink:  Ranger Vintage Photo; Accessories:  SU's Build-A-Brad, Marvy Uchida scallop oval punch, lace from Joann's, and scrumpled seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop.
