New Arrival

Hi and welcome to SugarPea Designs Challenge Day!  And here's this week's challenge.

Now I have to admit to taking a few liberties with the sketch this week and used stork legs for the flags :)

My nephew and his girlfriend became parents a couple of weeks ago and I needed a baby card.  What better set to use than the adorable Bundle of Joy.  I stamped and colored the stork and baby and paper-pieced the cloth the baby is in.  I then fussy cut the image out (and believe me, fussy-cutting round those legs was fiddly!

I cut a Soft Stone card base and stamped the sentiment, adhered some patterned paper to the top and colored a shadow where the stork would be.  Finally I adhered the stork and his precious bundle to the card.  The wee heart was colored with clear Wink of Stella for a little bit of shimmer.

And don't forget, SugarPea Designs are having a sale this week, so get in and grab a bargain!
