New Baby

Friday, 27 January 2012

So another fortnight has flew by and it's time for another challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog!

It's a special week this week as we are introducing some new DT members, so I'm not a newbie anymore! lol!
It's also the week we complete another round of the alphabet which means we're up to Z and the challenge for this week is...

Z for Zoo Animals!

When I first saw the challenge I thought it was gonna be hard to find an appropriate image - until I looked through my stamps and then I was spoilt for choice!

So here's what I did...

I used a Pink Petticoat image called Baby Elephant which I coloured with my promarkers (Cerise, Pink Carnation, Baby Pink, Carmine, Yellow, Buttercup, Grass, Leaf Green and blender pen)

I made a centre step card and the papers I used are Echo Park; Country Drive.  I edged it with tattered rose distress ink.

The "Bundle of joy" sentiment is also Pink Petticoat printed onto safmat and then framed with some Hodgepodge Hardware from Stampin' Up!.  The rest of the sentiments are computer generated and punched out with Stampin' Up! punches.

I used some pink adhesive pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts on the front and on the inside along with some other elements from the front.

That's it.  Why don't you head over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT have done - including all the new team members!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Bling It On; New beginnings
By The Cute & Girly; New beginnings
Charisma Cardz: Pretty in pink
Creative Inspirations; Anything goes
Digi Doodle Shop; Anything goes
Dream Valley Challenges; Animals

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!  Also a big hello to all my new followers!
