Vintage toddler

Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday we have a new challenge for you and this week's optional twist is to make a card with BABIES/TODDLERS.

I used an image from our sponsor for January -  Stitchy Bear Designs.
I colored her in shades of grey using Promarkers and fussy cut her. I attached to a kraft background which I embossed using an embossing folder from Tiddly Inks that came free with a magazine just recently. I added some white ink on top of the pattern and on the edges to give it a bit of an aged and softer look. I gave the oval with embossed sentiment the same treatment. I made a scene using a fence die from Marianne, heart swirls from Magnolia and some punched butterflies. Machine stitching around the edges.


This card is also for:
Make My Monday - Stitching
Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute + Kraft
Shopping Our Stash - #235 - Use 3 of something (punched butterflies) , 2 of something (heart swirls), 1 of something (image)
