C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - first challenge - something NEW....

My DT entry for the first challenge at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - very apt - something NEW......

This was great for me as friends of ours Robert and Karen had a baby girl "Megan" last week

and if you look closely - no your eyes are not decieving you she was 12lbs 7ozs - ouch!

This is the first ever "Big" card I have done - so something new for me also - it is A4 and I loved working with all this space. I used an A4 pink card blank with a layer of torn and distressed whitewash paper inked at edges. Leaves, birds and lettering are all cut on Pazzles using Basic Grey Eva and Sugared papers. Birds have rub on details of birth and the large "it's a girl" is also a Basic Grey Rub on. Birds are attached with brads. Little doodling using clear stardust Sakura on leaves.....

So looking forward to visiting all the entries - it's a fantastic prize , so please play along.....
