I am totally on a baby high after attending not 1 but 2 births yesterday :)
I have been a Doula for 10 years (officially on the 24th of this month) and in that time I have only had 2 moms in labour at the same time twice. Thank goodness I work with wonderful back up Doulas who are able to support my clients until I can arrive!
Baby #1 yesterday was a little boy (see his card later on this week...!) and Baby #2 was a little girl and this is the card I made for her.
I have decided to play along with a few challenges when creating this card...
Unscripted Sketches - Sketch (this is my first time playing along FAB find!)
ColourQ - Colour Theme
The Card Concept - Butterfly Theme (clean and layered)
Time Out Challenge - Inspiration Photo (this is my first time playing along with these lovely ladies!)
Take the time to let your creativity bloom!

Thanks for sharing such a gorgeous card. I really love how you brought the simple flourish stamp to life with punched pieces and a little bling. Absolutely stunning. I'm off to go find that stamp and make some for myself. Thanks for playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches :)ReplyDelete
