Here's a card I made for the arrival of 'our' first grand-daughter. She arrived safely on Thursday 23 August and we managed to get up to Derby to see them this weekend. She's such a cutie, bless her.

I hope you like the card, it was an 8 x 8" matted with Lucy Cromwell papers. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the pink paper to the left and then threaded white ribbon, which had been coloured with promarkers to match the colours in the central topper. (unfortunately you can't see much of it - but will use this technique again). I also hand embossed using my hougie board to make the trellis pattern.

The circle frame was cut from the grand nestabilities scalloped circles. The flowers were cut with a spellbinders die and I used an embossing tool to give them a bit of a curve and shape. The flourishes were a new marianne creatables die.

A couple of candi dots for the centre of the flowers and a bit of bling and there it is. Finally finished at midnight, the night before we went to see them! Why do I always leave things to the last minute?????
