Less is More - new baby

The current challenge over at Less is More - Week 68 is to make a card for a baby or child - I chose (well, not really chose you understand) a baby:
This truly is a 'Less is More' card and as time goes by I'm finding the challenge less frightening and more fun :)

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- image stamped onto white card stock using 'Baby's Pram' stamp by 'Funstamps' and using SU's 'Bashful Blue' ink pad

- Image matted onto a little square of SU 'Bashful Blue' card stock from the 'Subtles' range

- text stamped in 'Bashful Blue' using sentiments from SU's 'Petite Pairs' set, the text says 'Welcome baby - so glad you're here!' but it doesn't show up so well in the photo - the blue looks really pretty in real life

- two teensy little diamante hearts and one round diamante

I resisted the urge to do any colouring of the image as it seemed right as it was. It's a rubbish photo, trust me, everything was meticulously measured and properly placed, sigh :(

  5. That's a lovely baby card Di and perfect for the challenge, plenty of white (they like that).

    Hope you are catching up with your laundry, you are right about it being too hot for ironing. I had school uniforms to do yesterday and its no joke in this heat!

    Have a great day xx

  12. So elegant Di - just perfect - I love the little diamante accents. you were sooo right to hold off on colouring - it really doesn't need it.

    I share your photography frustration I couldn't get mine to show up either!
