A New Baby.....


..............and a very special one too.

Our Great Granddaughter was born 3 weeks early on 29 September and this is the card I made from me and GGD to welcome the little lady to the world  :)

This sooo sweet LOTV image is just right isn't it! The delicious lace is from Funkie Junkie Linda's boutique.
and I was lucky enough to find the white organza ribbon languishing in my ribbon drawer along with the ribbon that links the two panels.
The flowery BG paper is from Far Far Hill.

One handmade flower, the rest from WOC, all painted with iridescent medium for a lovely shine and my trusty leaf punch to compliment the leaves on the image - not much like them though are they. lol.

The inside....

8" square and presented in a simply decorated box.

LOTV - anything goes
That Craft Place - baby
Cards Galore - October challenge - flowers
Oldie but a Goodie - bingo -  3 lines!! - 1 diagonal, 2 across, 3 down - old punch and organza ribbon
Lexi's #100 - pink
Pan Pastels - anything goes
Crafty Ribbons #64 - anything goes with ribbon

Thank you for stopping by
Cheers me dears :)
