LOC New Baby

I have been busy working away on a New Release that is coming up - be warned - you are going to LOVE IT!!  In the meantime I have something so-o-o cute to show you....

I could not resist using these darling little chicks from the Layers of Color Rise & Shine art stamp set to create a baby card.

They have been stamped with Distressing Ink and coloured with SU Chalks using a Blender Pen.

The sentiment from the Layers of Color Happy Wishes art stamp set has been stamped directly onto the DP from Stampin Up - this is from my ever growing pile of off cuts. 

Adding a punched border using the Martha Stewart Picket Fence punch and layering some hand dyed Seam Binding onto it.  This finished it off beautifully and made the card pop....it never ceases to amaze me how one small thing can add so much to a card...

This card is for the following challenges:
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Wrap It Up with Ribbon
KB Cute Monday - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
All Sorts - Things with Wings
