Forever Friends Baby Girl Patchwork Card


I hope you are all fine and haven't been affected by the adverse weather conditions Bertha brought a few days ago.  We weren't too badly affected in Inverness itself but the surrounding area was hit quite badly.  I think the train lines East to Aberdeen and South to Perth are still closed.

Tonight's card is another baby girl card, all our friends and relatives have been having girls lately there hasn't been any boys for a while now.  I've gone back to a patchwork theme again as I really like the effect and it's great for using up wee scraps of paper.

The digi is from the Docrafts Forever Friends New Arrival DVD which was free with a magazine a wee while back.  I'm usually a bit nervous of using CDs or DVDs but I find the Docrafts Digital Designer ones are quite straight forward to use.  I coloured in the image with Promarkers and all the papers used are from the Hot Diggety Dog collection, also by Docrafts.  I've used a Spellbinders Nesty set to die cut the patchwork 'swatches' and added faux stitching with a Micron pen.  The sentiment stamp is by LOTV and the circle dies are by X-cut.  All I've added are some pearls and a spotty organza ribbon bow.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
