Baby Girl Card

A friend of mine let me borrow all her Pink Gem stamps, (thanks Denyze) and I just love this little baby image, I stamped twice, once onto Cloisonne paper by GCD Studios (from Michaels), and once onto white, then paper pieced. The colouring was done with copic markers

I tied a little enamel charm with a safety pin to the bow, and used some real broderie anglaise to edge the card - I always associate this lace with tiny babies and little girls
Isn't she a cutie? The corner rounder is by Marvy, and is a favourite of mine

I think summer has packed up and gone home, not that it ever came to visit us for long this year, today is grey, blustery and downright cold - oh yes, and raining. I can't wait to feel the Florida sun again
