Penny Black Creation

 Morning peeps, this mornings post is scheduled as I'm away galavanting on the mainland again today. I sincerely hope MR Blogger is behaving and you are reading this post. My youngest (17) needs a new bed so we are bed hunting today oh the joys. My Sugar Nellie DT package arrived yesterday so I've been this space!
I made this card a few days ago for Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme this week is New Beginings. I needed a baby card for a wee cutie that was brought into the world not that long ago. 

 I adore this Penny Black image and I have coloured it using my Aquamarkers and added a touch of Twinkling H2Os for sparkle. The gingham paper is from the S.W.A.L.K cd rom. The welcome matt and heart are from Home Accents and Accent Essentials cricut cartridges. I have hand stitched around the edge.
the heart has been embossed using Swiss dots and the button is Basic Grey. Hero Arts pearls to finish.

 I used the Martha Stewart Doily punch down the edge of a piece of card then attached to the edge of the card.
Crafty Calender Challenge is also looking for New Beginnings this month....and...
Passion for Promarkers  the theme is Baby Cards

Please join me tomorrow for my first official DT post for Sugar Nellie...I'm all excited....see you tomorrrow.

Whatever you are doing today......enjoy! Ali x
