Special Delivery

It's time for our first challenge of the year at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme is Celebrating Something New.

I have used this sweet Baby Animals - Digi Stamp available in the Pink Gem Designs Shop to make my new baby card.

I have coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and added a sentiment from the Crafter's Companion Baby Greetings Sentimentals stamp set.

The papers are from NitWit Collections, I have inked the edges of everything and added some buttons from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front - I am determined to either decorate the inside of my cards or add an insert this year.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge 232 - Anything Goes
Craft Rocket Challenge 30 - Something New
Pattie's Creations Challenge 130 - Use an Animal Image

Make sure you pop over to the A Gem of a Challenge blog and join us for our Celebrating Something New challenge, don't forget to visit the Pink Gem Designs Shop to take a look at all of the fabulous Digi Stamps and Kits that are available, grab a coffee and have a leisurely browse whilst you are there.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

I LOVE this card, such a lovely image, great papers and design too.

I find it so much easier to add inserts while finishing off the card, otherwise I find it harder if I have to add them later. Go for it Pauline. LOL
