Card To Welcome Baby& New Challenge at RRR

Standard

Hey there Peeps. We’re starting a new challenge at RRR today and the theme this time is Celebrate with Ribbon or Trim ….which you know I am all about lol.

I created a card to celebrate a new baby. I think it would look really lovely displayed in a nursery after the baby arrives.  Prop it on a shelf with some books and vintage baby toys.

This little puppy image was the inspiration for the card. I took the color cue from the border and incorporated the blues and greens.

So many glorious flowers all arranged with coordinating ribbon, Prills, spiral stamens, and twine.

A tiny metal charm hangs on this side and has more of the Prills and twine.  I used a tiny clip to attach a sweet label over fishtail shapes in matching paper patterns.

Metal mailing tags and additional flowers to balance the arrangement on the top with altered chippies that create a lovely border and sentiment.

Tattering the edges adds a lot of texture and spacers between the layers creates depth.  This card would make a great addition to the nursery décor.
