Less is More # 68...Baby or Child

Good Afternoon All!
I hope I find you all well and managing to stay warm in these chilly temps. The weatherman says it`s going to get warmer during the week. About flippin` time too I say.
I`d like to welcome my new follower too. Thank you for choosing my little blog to take a look at.

I was only thinking during the week that I ought to get some baby cards made for the fundraising box and also for St Lukes and lo and behold, the gods were listening.
The challenge at Simply Less is More this week is to make a clean and simple card for a baby or a child.Yaaayy!

I started yesterday with these two,

 The Giraffe is a digi from Pink Petticoat coloured with markers.
I printed the gingham, also from Pink Petticoat, straight onto to some card and cut a panel the same height but slightly narrower than the card and placed it using foam pads
I made the bow a double layered flat one this time for a change and added a heart gem in the centre.
The image is cut out with a nestie oval as is the sentiment which is computer generated.
I thought a pink one and a blue one is a good start.

Then I thought there might not be enough `white space` for Mandi and Chrissie`s exacting standards ;) so I made this one this morning.
The stamp is by PSX now out of business. I tried for years to get my hands on this stamp. I adore it.
It`s such a beautiful image and gives a really clean crisp finish. I eventually found this one at Bladerunner and could have cried when I found it. How sad am I? And then I`ve hardly used her.
Anyway, I`ve stamped the image and coloured her with markers adding a little Glamour dust to the moon and star. She`s cut out with a Spellbinders Fleur de lis square and mounted onto a square card using foam pads.
I`ve added a small bow and a tiny rosebud to finish.
No sentiment because I thought it could be either a birth or christening card.

I might have to play for a while longer with this baby stamp to get my stocks built up. I`ve lots of ideas in my head and none of them are particularly clean and simple. I`m thinking layers...lots of layers lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
