Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Look What the Stork Brought

Woohoo!! Time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Challenge and this week our theme is Look What the Stork Brought! As always we are sponsored by the very generous Heidi with a whopping $50 credit voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store!!!

As I only have two baby stamps I decided to make something different and came up with the idea of creating a bib as the focal point for the card. The papers are from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby collection, sewn and distressed.

I cut the bib using nesties and stitched some lace around the edge. The butterflies are by Magnolia and were stamped in Victorian Velvet distress ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder to give the effect of being embroidered onto the bib.

The gorgeous blossoms are by Prima and the rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves were cut with a Magnolia doohickey die and the pearl stems are from my stash.

The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy stamped with Victorian Velvet distress ink and I attached the tag with a couple of Tim Holtz mini fasteners.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the gorgeous baby cards from the rest of the team! Thanks for looking! x
