Our Little Sweetheart

She is so tiny...weighed 5lb at birth, which is not bad considering she was over 3 weeks early.

 For those of you who haven't read my previous post.......NO! she is not mine, lol.
This is from DD and SIL, the proud Grandparents, using the favourite photo of the moment. 

8" square

I made the frame from some embossed card (CB textile folder) it is layered on the photo with foam tape and has a tiny bit of sparkle on some of the raised parts.

The pretty rose BG paper is , once again, from Far Far Hill. I'm  using lots of roses for the baby cards as their surname is Rose :)

The corner triangle sentiment and greeting were computer generated, matted on to pearlescent card with more sparkle on the edges and fixed with foam tape. The Vines of Passion heart is cut from same card. The tattered muslin was dyed with Spun Sugar DI.

I have noticed the triangle, bottom right, looks skewy although no-one noticed it IRL. Serves me right for taking a wonky pic

ONE handmade rose and the other roses also dyed with the same DI.
A seam binding bow and bling and that is it.

 The inside is similar to that of my previous card using the same paper as the front. It was presented in a simply decorated box.

I know this copy/pasty business must be getting boring, but at least that way I can get to my fav blogs for a nose, say hello and have a good weekend.

Such a lovely photo Irene and she was quite a weight considering she was so early.
I love the soft and gentle look of this and the embossing is gorgeous.
