For a baby girl

I was invited to be a Guest Designer over at Challenge Up Your Life for their new challenge, which is all about babies. For some reason I don't see my card up on their blog but decided to show you this now on my blog anyway, as it was made with other challenges in mind as well.

I started out picking out a few scrap papers from Maja Design to be used with my "Mini Perfect Patches" die from Memory Box. Then I used dies from Lawn Fawn to make the little hearts and the banner with sentiment, stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp.
The duck, rabbit and rattle are made with Lawn Fawn stamps. I stamped directly onto DP leftovers. I also added one button with a little string bow.

This card is also made with these challenges in mind:
Cards in Envy - Squares
Creative With Stamps Challenge -  #5 Geometric
Inkspirational - #115 Patterned Paper
Dream Valley Challenges - Pink

This is adorable, Pia! I have never knew that there was a die for patchwork pieces, this is a great idea for using scraps!!Love the cute animals and the hearts, they make tis card very feminine and so sweet!
Hope that in that challenge where you are GD they see the forgetfulness!

MaryH said...

Congratulations on your GD spot! This is absolutely a darling card. Just loving those Maja papers, and don't have any of them. Not any local sources, and the one website that I am aware of having this product, is such a slow shipper, I haven't placed any recent orders. You've used them so well on this cute card! Take care, TFS & Hugs
