The bear and rabbit are colored with Copics, the "Ella" is paper pieced with two different prints from the Basic Grey Marjolaine pack, I am really getting lot of use from these colors and patterns! TIP: Use the same print from your piecing somewhere else on your card to tie it in. I popped them up over the Labels Eight die cut, wanted to use them on their own to show the "Spring Basket" is NOT required to make this image work, but if you want to place them in the basket, simply cut up around the trunk and under the rabbits arm and ear on the right side, this allows you to slip it under a cut basket but have these floppy limbs hang over, looks super cute! Will do another post to show you pic sof exactly what I mean...
The plaid is layered over Little Boy Blue and the White Pure Luxury base is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder. I put a few alpha letter beads onto the white safety pin, my embellishment of choice on baby cards (number 2 is buttons!) and attached it with glue dots.
This card celebrates the birth of a little boy to a mom in my small group, he was born several weeks prematurely (although still 8 pounds, she has huge babies!) and he is making so much progress, the Lord has answered so many prayers already, the doctors are quite amazed. If you are able, please lift up a prayer for little Brenner today he can stay off his oxygen and pass his swallow test today so his doctor will sign off on letting him come home tomorrow, thank you!
