Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #17: Celebration/4th of July


Happy Monday! It's that time of the week for another challenge over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. This week's theme is Celebration/4th of July and our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. I chose to do a card to celebrate the birth of a new baby using the adorable "Hand in Hand" image from Bugaboo Stamps.

Here's my creation...

Hand in Hand

The base of my 6x6 card was created using SU cardstock.  I layered on a scrap piece of dp I had in my stash.  I used MS punch to cut out a brown piece of SU cardstock to put across the middle of the card.  I then layered on a diecut that I cut using my Cricut.  I used a Spellbinder's Lace diecut to mat my image.  My image was colored with Copics E01, E11, E21, E13 and R29.  I used a SU punches to cut out my sentiment which I created.  I finished my card off by adding some pearls.  The sentiment reads...

Hold on to me sweet little one,
and I will guide you
through life's storms.

Well, I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week.
