A baby fills a place in your heart...

....that you never knew was empty. That is what it written on one of this week's new release images at  Bugaboo. I colored the image using Promarkers and chose colors fit for a baby boy.
The background is embossed with a Spellbinders EF. I machine stitched (again) the edges with zagzag stitches. I used lace and ribbon from my stash and added a metal charm. Not a complicated card, but it has lots of texture. No DPs used. I'm a DP addict but lately I've found myself using less DPs and more embossing folders. Heat embossing used to be my favorite embossing style, but in my non-DP mood I prefer dry embossing to decorate my background (I'm not that good at using inks and stencils just yet...)

This card is also for:
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Style Of Embossing & Why (dry when no DPs used)
Cute Card Thursday - #416 Lace Or Ribbon (I used both)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

Superb colouring and card, Pia. It's funny how we go in fads ie embossing or DP. I mainly use embossing at mo, and last card just made could've use DP chose to make my own with stamps and ink.. :) saved trying to match colours on main image.

I LOve the shape of your card Pia..Such a FABulous design. Your stitching and pretty lace are GORgeous .LOve the little charm and this embossing folder.

Mimi said...

Hey girl, very cute! Your machine stitching always is the perfect touch. Something about a baby card just fits with stitching, too. (And those dry-embossed dots: it's like a baby blanket-- just sewed a few the other night)
