B is for Beautiful Babies
I've just been over to the Alphabet Challenge blog and want to send congratulations to Chanya, Sarn & Elizabeth on winning the last challenge. Well done Girls. They are all lovely cards.
I've made this card for my charity box which I will be sending off at the end of the month. I would also like to enter it into the challenge over at the Alphabet Challenge Blog.
The topper was made with an old Nellie Snelling brass stencil which I embossed with my little lightbox then coloured with chalk inks whilst keeping the stencil in place. I made a couple of holes either side of the stork's beak so that I could attach the craft wire with the word beads on. I tore one side of the white card, inked round the edge with the blue chalk ink and scribbled a bit of grass at the bottom to ground the bird.
The blue lace paper which I've had for a long time is from a pad by Joanna Sheen. I think it's so pretty and fresh that I use it sparingly. I punched the top left hand corner with a corner punch and added the three punched hearts and finally a gold peeloff sentiment.
Since the beginning of the year I set myself the task of using up my stash of peeloffs, some of which I have had since I began card making some years ago now. Still loads to go ..... watch this space!
