Sad News - and a New Baby

It's been a very sad week in the Glittertastic household. Our beloved cat, Harvey, had a sudden stroke and although we rushed him to the vet he didn't make it. He was 18 years old and ruled the roost! Rest In Peace little buddy - you were loved so much.

So I haven't really had the heart to make many cards but today I needed a baby girl card...

The gorgeous image is of course Baby Hammock from Penny Black which I've stamped using black ink (Docrafts Artiste) and coloured with pro-markers. I've used patterned papers from a pad from The Works. I made the greeting in Publisher using Candy Round font and added pearl and silver peel-off strips as embellishments.

My layout came from this lovely sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

I'm also entering this card into the challenges at:

Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Unicorn Challenge #45 - for a baby or child
Passion for Pro-markers #500 - make it square
As You Like It - favourite make for a baby. My favourite make is a congratulations card - but they must be cute. It's a chance to use really pretty pink and blue papers and it's a lovely keepsake for the new parents to keep forever.

Thanks for visiting
