Something NEW at For Fun Challenges...

I hope everyone is still enjoying a season of celebrations... my Christmas here has been snowless, full of humid rainstorms, cold winds, and sprinkled with the over-indulgence of good food! Roll on 2012 and new diet plans...

This week at For Fun Challenges, our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps... and our challenge for you is to create and commemorate something NEW ... it could be the New Year, a new baby, a new house... Our Design Team at For Fun has a wonderful variety of creations to share... hop on over and see!  I created a New Baby card, using a delightful image from our sponsor.

Ingredients: White, Sky Blue(s) Cardstock; Stardust Glitter Pens; Le Plume marker; White Gel Pen; Rhinestones; Gelly Lace Border; Lingerie Bow....

I love the fun bold figures of the AKV (A Kid's View) range at Bugaboo. I  coloured the image mostly with a glitter pens, using a Le Plume marker for the babe's face, and white gel pen for the clouds.  I trimmed it, and matted it on a layer of pearly blue cardstock, then fixed it directly to a Sky Blue cardbase (it looks more of a pale teal to me...)   I then added a piece of Gelly Lace - it's a sticker, but made of a soft gel, about as soft as a peel-off sentiment.... very delicate!  It has a wonderfully smooth texture.    Finally, I added a wee bow, a lingerie bow (or as I used to call as a kid, "Knicker Bows"), and some blue rhinestones to the corners, for sparkle sparkle!

I'm also entering this card creation in the challenges at:
Anything Goes - Blue and One Colour (11/1)
Crafty Boots - Celebrations (10/1)

I hope you'll join us at For Fun Challenges for our new NEW Challenge! Thanks for peepin'!
