It's A Girl

Firstly I'd like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year and hope that you had a wonderful christmas. I  must admit that I'm still trying to work out what day of the week it is and get back into some sort of routine !!

It's rather fitting that my first card of the new year is for a new baby girl who was born in December. I continued with the new theme and decided to try something different and make a wobble card which worked out in the end - but a mental note to myself that flowers overbalance the card !!

I used this sweet LOTV image coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment was done on the computer. The dies I used are Marianne Creatables LR0111 & LR0156 for the flower & leaves and 2 of LR0180 circles to layer the image onto. I coloured the edge of a paper doiley with the same pink Promarker and placed over the base card before attaching the image. Then I added a couple of punched butterflies and from my stash I used pink gems for the flower centres and finally 4 pink pearls to balance the weight !!

I shall enter this in the following challenges
