Mother and Baby Card

Hi - I just love this sweet digi stamp from Tiddly Inks and have been wanting to make a card using it.  I just found out someone close to me is pregnant so I thought this would be a nice card for her.

The image is colored with Copic markers.  I cut the scalloped circles with my Cricut and the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I used Hug Snug Seam Binding for the bow, it looks really white in the picture but it is actually more cream.  I think I made the bow a little too big :).  The flower is Prima and the pearls are from Way2Scrap.  The patterned papers for the background are Me & My Big Ideas and the strip is Making Memories.  I inked everything with Vintage Paper Distress Ink.

I used Tsukineko shimmer spritz on the whole card - I love the coverage you get from this spritz, it's very sparkly.

Here is a close up - you can see the sparkle a little better.


I love this quote from Charles Dickens - it's so sweet.
