This morning at 4am my sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful little girl. As yet she is unamed as her parents want to call her Gemma, but her two big brothers aged 3 and 6 had decided by the time their new sister arrived home this morning at 10am that she should be called Charlotte. The jury is still out......!
Naturally I've made them a card to celebrate the arrival of 'Gemmalotte' and couldn't do it without my trusty stamps.
Pink pirouette and the soon to return pear pizzazz are my colours of choice with whisper white. I've used the flower fusion sizzlits and one of the itty bitty shapes punch pack to make the flowers and of course the leaves are from the bird punch. I used my simply scored scoring tool to break up the 'pink' base card by scoring a grid on it on the metric plate. A dotty embossed apothecary accent framelit made a perfect matting layer and my congratulations sentiment is from the soon to retire Curly Cute stamp set. Finally another little accent for a sweet new baby is from That's the Ticket and punched out with the matching punch. I've used a flower brad which sadly retired last year, but you know what we crafters are like we can't let go of our stash!!
As we celebrate the safe arrival of my neice I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend. Zx
