No Christmas Cards Today!!!

Good morning...I have a friend who is expecting her first grandbaby so I made this for her daughter. They don't know the sex yet therefore I pulled out the yellow and green!! The paper is PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings and I used Moss Green cardstock from PTI for the trim at the top and the rick rack. Sewing was done in the background and I cut the felt piece out with a heart shaped Nestabilities. The sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs Little Bits O Baby and the metal heart, ribbon, button, twine, button and ticket finish it off.
Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs O Baby
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Papertrey Ink's Moss Green, PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings dp
Accessories: Making Memories Metal Pendant Heart, PTI Harvest Gold Ribbon, Felt from MFT, Button, Twine, Sewing Machine, Melissa Frances Baby Ticket, Heart Shaped Nestabilities, Taylored Expressions Rick Rack die.
I made this card yesterday for the Ways to Use It challenge #301 on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use glitter...I love to use glitter even though it gets all over me and my stamp room!!!
I also made this for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday challenge to go shopping for Boisterous Bree....poor thing needs a new wardrobe so she can audition for Glee!!
I used this weeks Color Challenge #301 colors, Basic Gray, Marina Mist, Concord Crush, and Rubbernecker's Fashion Icon 455 and 456 stamp sets, along with the Rubbernecker Victorian Diamond Panel background stamp. The images were watercolored, cutout, glittered up, and attached with dimensionals. The wrinkled seam binding, button, and ribbon finish it off. This weeks Destination Station is Abby...she is a 15 year old going through chemotherapy.
