Baby girl - A Passion for Stamps digi image

After all the problems with blogger over the past couple of days, I'm finally getting this pic uploaded.  I've also had to post Thursday's card again - with all the hooha, somehow it ended up lost!


This gorgeous little special delivery digi image is from A Passion for Stamps and I coloured it with copics and koh-i-noor pencils.
The circles (plain & scalloped) are cut with nestabilities dies.
To make the flowers - punch them out with a daisy punch, turn them over and score lines from the centre of the flower to the end of each petal.  Then gently fold the sides together (without creating a definite crease mark). Turn over again.
Layer 2 daisies together and another smaller punched flower and finish with a pink gem.
The leaves are made with a McGill pine leaf punch.
The sentiment is computer generated using Splendid 66 & Worstveldsling fonts (dafont.com).
The tulle ribbon and button are from my stash - I think I got the ribbon reel from Crafts U Love.

I'm off now to have a look at the Less is More blog to see what the challenge is for this week - mind you, I still have birthday cards to make for my triplet nephews for tomorrow so I might be better doing that first......I might get too distracted otherwise :)

Thanks for taking the time to visit today, see you soon!

This is so cute - and I love the stork's little feet! Blogger being down knocked lots of us for six! I had heaps of things I should have been doing but decided to spend the day scrapbooking instead! Vx
