Welcome baby Emily!

My sister had her second child, Emily, this week, and I was finally able to visit them today!

I've had this adorable image of baby taking a bath in my box of pif's and rak's for a while now, and decided it would be perfect for Emily's card. Isn't she cute? The image was colored with copic markers, and has stardust gellroll pen on the bubbles for a bit of sparkle.

For the card itself, I decided to use some scraps I had leftover from making a name frame for Emily's big sister, Anna, to make a quilted background. The image was cut out with a scalloped square Nestabilities, and hand stitched to a piece of PTI Sweet Blush card stock (I used DMC thread #3713 if you are interested. It is a perfect match for the paper.). The bottom layer was also cut out with a scalloped square Nestabilities, and then run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I curled up the edges of the bottom layer before attaching the stitched layer with pop-dots.

Copic markers used:

Challenges I participated in with this card:

Moving along with the Times - in stitches
Craft your Days away - girly n glitter
Stamp Something - Something cute
Paper Play - in stitches
