Welcome Baby

Hello everyone,

Another lovely Saturday and time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we would love to see baby cards in the shabby or vintage style. The uber talented Starr Timmons is joining us as a Guest Designer this Saturday. You can visit her blog The Paper Chase to see more of her beautiful work.

For my take on the challenge this week I used an illustration from Antique Images for my background. The lovely  pastel colored vintage baby illustration is from a 1915 baby book. The baby carriage die cut is from Marianne Design Creatables. The sentiment is my own computer creation. The lovely velvet For-get-me nots were purchased from a local vintage craft market. Baby cards are a bit difficult for me  but I hope you like my creation.

Challenges:

    oh, Amelia, I am smitten. Such a sweetness. Your artwork always has such a peaceful, delightful, happy tone, and this one just brings a smile to my lips. The 3 pastel colors look sweet. My favorite is the dimension and shading in the baby buggy/pram – and the darling little baby smiling so happily. I can hear her little giggles and cooing. Beautiful card, Amelia.
