Precious Moments

I've finished this card just in time for Stampin' for the Weekend's challenge this week: Anything Baby Goes. I've used the lovely sketch by Bev from Whiff of Joy's Challenge to make my card. This week's challenge at Spoonful of Sugar is to use Distressing; I've used my Distress inks to give a soft, vintage look to Willow on the card. Last but not least Pile It On has a Round and Round challenge that is covered by the dotty paper.

I do love the Willow and baby stamp from Whiff of Joy, I'm saving up to get some of the other stamps in this series, they are just beautiful. Willow's coloured with Copics and edged with Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed inks. All the papers are Stampin' Up. The dotty border has been punched with my Martha Stewart flourish punch, the ribbon is from stash. The Precious Moments ticket comes from the Bearly Mine country designs CD - I must print some more from this collection, they're brilliant. The flower is a Prima one with a punched dotty flower in the centre and a spacer from Quixotic Paperie. I cut the leaves free-form from a scrap and gave them veins using my scoring board, I'm really pleased with the way they look.
