Adding the flowers ...

 Hi Everybody,

Making cards for a new arrival is always a very pleasant pastime for me  .... especially little girls.

On these I can add flowers, ribbons and pearls to my hearts content ... and I have never had a baby complain yet about too much "Bling"

So this is the card that I have made and I think it is very pretty as it is ... but for me it is not enough.
So I have added in the ever beautiful flowers and these are from Wild Orchid Crafts  along with some Ivy and they have all been sparkled with Glamour Dust.

The pink pearls are from Want2Scrap and are some from the Bulk Bling that is now on sale.

I have added these to the cross sections in the Tied Together embossing  folder

I have also added in a little Rocking Horse charm that can be detached and added to a charm bracelet as the child gets older.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley  and it has been heat embossed in silver.

The whole effect is so much prettier for the addition of a few flowers and this has only taken five of them to transform the card.

And don't forget the inside too ... make that just as pretty as the front and you as well as the recipient will be delighted with it.

             Drum Roll Lease !!

I have sold the first card in my brand new Etsy Shop and I am delighted.

So Thank you to Wendy who was my first customer on the 30th September... your order is much appreciated

I am going to add this Baby Card card to the shop also

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
