LOC Beautiful Babe

Altering things is so much fun, especially when it is for the arrival of a baby....

I have created my own DP by using the gorgeous little flower from the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet clear art stamp set and lightly colouring using Stampin' Up Chalks and a Blender Pen

Layering up one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Collector clear art stamp set and adding a gorgeous Mulberry Rose to the centre. 

 The wings have been popped up with some foam tape - I love the dimension this gives.

Gorgeous roses, lace and pearls - all divine and could not be resisted for this framed Album

The photo is the frame is of the darling baby this gift is for - Tia Joy.  When her parents sent us this card, I know it had to be the centrepiece for something sweet....
