Babies ...

Most who know me will know I am not a huge magnolia fan, they just never look right to me, but when I saw this stamped image on ebay I just had to have it.

This card has been in the making for the last 2 weeks, I kept doing a bit and putting it to one side, I also have a pink one which is almost complete aswell!

Sentiment - From Elzybells

 

Stamped image from ebay which has been coloured with a mixture of promarkers and copicsm the the edges to the pillow, the baby clothes and the wings have been glittered up which you can just make out in the picture.

And the complete card


I wanted to keep the card fairly simple but with enough bling and prettyness to catch the eye, the clouds that the baby is sitting on were Pauls idea so I cut them from a sheet of 12x12 Echo park paper, I then added some glossy accents and glitter to define a silver lining. The spotty background is Wild Rose Studio and the flowers are a mixture of Prima, Wild orchid and Calico crafts. 
The Pearls I put on by hand without using a template (because I still haven't bought one and it has been on my to buy list forever!!) The Charm is one from my stash. 

Hope you like it! 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Tams, your card is so pretty. I love that image and the flowers and bling are just perfect. You know, when I first saw the Magnolia stamps I didn't like them either...no nose, no mouth? What's that all about? But they kind of grew on me and now I love them.
