New bump

One of my friends had great news to share this week - she's cooking a special little bump ;-)  Naturally I needed to make a card to celebrate this fact and it meant a chance to ink up a magnolia I bought for just such an occasion.

Nothing says happy to me like bunting so I was happy to see the challenge at Cupcake crafts this week and used that as my starting point for the card.  I picked out some MME papers and stuck the copic coloured and fussy cut image onto them but decided it needed something more to make it "happier".  The bingo challenge at ATS this week pointed me in the direction of buttons and embossing for emblishments so I added some ribbon, a little floral button and then heat embossed the congrats (waltzingmouse) sentiment directly ont the dp.

I'm also going to enter it into the following challenges:

Use Ribbon -

Anything goes -

  6. Love this card Tara!

    Thought I'd mention that the envelopes got finished :) Someone already looked into the Royal Mail postage side and apparently our numbers aren't high enough but I sure would be pleased if they were! Might be getting to time for someone else to take over I think!
