TLC162 - Bundle of Joy

Today's "Try a new Technique" is about "paper tole" or how I would subscribe it - to make an image look 3-D....

This challenge came in handy today, because friends of ours just announced that they became Grandparents for the first time - YEAHHH!!! They have been waiting for a while and now they are having a beautiful little Granddaughter named Madeline.

Which led me to create a card with the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.

Everyone who played my Blog Candy Giveaway last week and who loves these colors I have created this card for you!!! I love it - great choice!!!

I have used Beate's Sketch Challenge #31 to create this card - since I've no ability to create my own.... - LOL!!!

I have started out with Whisper White as my base and adhered the cute Polka Dot Prints DP from the Hostess Set. Then I added Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, CC again and Whisper White as my pain image panel. The CC CS below the image was pierced!!!

I have stamped the "Bear" from the "Bundle of Joy" set with Brown Stazon and cut the second image out for my 3-D look. I have then colored it with Pretty in Pink using the Blender Pen.
The little bow was adhered with a Mini Glue Dot and I used the 1/4" Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.

The side panel was layered with Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I centered three Antique Jumbo Eyelets with Pink Rhinestones from Making Memories on the top part. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped in Chocolate Chip. The little "Heart" was colored with Pretty in Pink.

I used the 1" circle to punch out the sentiment then layered it with the 1 1/4" circle and the scalloped circle.

Hope you like it and I'm already working on something "NEW" so hope to see ya soon....TFL!!!

This is adorable! Had I seen it before I needed a bunch of baby cards last month, I would have CASEd the whole thing. Love it, love it, love it! (Maybe I'll make it into a birthday card idea with a cupcake instead of the teddy.)

Silke, this card is adorable! Love the polka dot background, the rhinestone brads inside the jumbo eyelets, and love how you used the paper tole technique on the bear! LOVE it!

(You're not alone .... I'm "sketch-dependent" too! LOL!)
