First Card for Blog

Hi everyone, so here we go the start of a new journey for my card making. Below is a card I made for a new baby girl, as well as posting it here I am going to have a go at entering it into a few blog challenges.

The image is a penny black stamp I have had for ages that I coloured in using brush markers with a water colouring technique I then matted the image onto pink card from my stash and edged with diamond stickles. The sentiment is cut from wrapping paper and again matted as above I punched two holes and tied some butchers twine from the Ribbon Girl through the holes. The backing papers are from my stash one of them is a doodlebug design but not sure about the others. The main stamped image is further embelished using shimmer dots from Papermania and the flowers are paper flowers that I have cut from various scraps from my stash then embossed the centres to give a 3d effect and attached using silicone gel. Hope you like it.

I am entering this into the Papertake Challenge.............anything goes and
Penny Black Saturday Challenge
