Sweet Baby

I'm in a baby mood at the moment, not for me, but a friend's daughter is about to turn one, and my great niece will be one in August.... so I've been reflecting on how the little ladies have grown in their first year!

I just had to use this vintage image... I love it so much!  It fits these challenges:
My Time To Craft #95 - Extra Special
Order of the Opus Gluei #59 - Icecream
Crazy 4 Challenges #42 - Paper Flowers
Just Us Girls #38 Colour Challenge

Artistic licence taken for the Icecream Challenge, using my husband's bowl of Neopolitan icecream as inspiration.... which also met the colour challenge at JUGS!  No iceceam was harmed in the creation of this card!

Ingredients used : Photo printed vintage image, Bazzill CS, Baby Pink Lace, Hand Dyed Vintage Pink Lace, Adhesive White pearls. White Paper Flower, Chalks, Corner Rounder.

Although the image had already been tinted, I added more colour to it - face, blanket, hair... it was very very pale, and the lace and cardstock overpowered it.  The image was trimmed and mounted,  and then lace and pearls added. I added the flower (through a pierced hole) and fixed it at the back, before securing the hand-dyed vintage lace frill around the mounted image. Everything was then secured to the cardbase.  T'was then that I decided the flower was too pale, so it secumbed (sp?) to a smattering of chalks!  I'm happy now!  Thanks for looking...

Hugs and Blessings,

This is BEAUTIFUL. I love your interpretation of the ice cream challenge at OPUS GLUEI. The only thing that would have made this card better would be if some ice cream HAD been harmed. LOL. Thanks so much for playing with us.
