WoJ - bundle of joy

O.K after 2 wedding cards it's time for a baby :) I've made a 'spring' card which has lots of folds so should qualify for the challenge over on Truly scrumptious.

I've used this adorable image from the new batch of WoJ baby releases which was just so pretty that I just had to add all the flowers and hearts around her, couldn't stop myself!
I used a pearlescent cardstock so it looks a bit dark in this top photo, whereas the photo below shows it more shimmery and the lighter shade that it is (but then you can't see the stamped sentiment in that photo so thought I'd put both on!)

  • Images: Willow with baby (don't know the proper names for them yet!) and sentiment both Whiff of Joy stamps released June 14th
  • Colouring: Copics (just saw the news about the new light 0000 shades coming out soon- will definately be getting those as I use light shades to create my highlights and blend - hardly ever use my blender pen)
  • Paper: K& CO paper and white glitter paper as per my last card but mainly just the pink pearlescent cardstock which I folded into the spring shape - easy to do with a scorer and instructions can be found over on SCS.
  • Others: Martha stewart scallop border punch, heart punch, EK swirl punch and prima flowers with paper rose centres to finish

    Hope you're enjoying these previews as much as I am! Don't forget that there will be a few candies around - you just need to go visit all the DT's blogs (links in my sidebar) to find them. You can find mine at the top of my blog (please comment in the right place if you want to enter - have had a few stray ones!)
Thanks for dropping by. See you tomorrow for my ATC.
