It's time for another challenge over at JUST CUTE BEARS...YAY,now where's that fortnight gone?...this week our theme is "BABY",with the bonus challenge of gingham paper and ribbon...well i'm sure you will agree no hardship there :0)
I've gone for a slightly different shaped card this week and not the usual pale pink,blue or lemon colour scheme you would normally use for a baby card.
The two bear images are both from Elzybells,sadly now closed down...but as one door closes another one opens and i'm pleased to say that Elizabeth will be designing for Penny cool is that.
I've coloured the images with Koh-I-Noor woodless colouring pencils,blended with Sansador.
The gingham cardstock is DCWV "Nana's Kitchen" and the textured cardstock also DCWV.
The sentiment and letters are rub ons.
The ballon punch is Xcut,ribbon,button and adhesive pearls from stash.

Hope you will all come and join us this week...and a big thank you to those of you who took up the challenge last time,there were some amazing cards :0).

I'm entering this card in the following challenges :-
ALLSORTS CHALLENGE....Song inspiration.."Welcome to my world" by Jim Reeves.
PIXIE DUST STUDIO...."Sweet Baby".
TOTALLY PAPERCRAFTS....Buttons and Bows.

All that's left to say is have a lovely Sunday whatever you're up to :0)...i'll be back tomorrow with another card and alittle bit of news :0).
Take care

Fabulous card San, really unusual shape but it's great. I loved Elzybells and was so pleased to hear about Elizabeth being snapped up by Penny Black, it would've been a shame for her talent to have gone to waste.
