Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Babies

It's challenge time again over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog, and this week our theme is Babies.  I was lucky enough to get this sweet image from one of our sponsors, Lacy Sunshine.  It's called Honeysuckle Rose, from their Flower Pot Pretties collection, found here, and I coloured it with pencils.  Here is a list of other supplies I used:
  • Stamp:  Baby sentiment (Studio G Clear Stamps)
  • Ink:  Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid
  • DP:  EK Success - Phrase Café Baby
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframes Circles, Spellbinder Eyelet Circles
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Heart Blocks
  • Embellishments:  Safety pin, pearls, ribbon, plastic die cuts (dollar store)

I hope you'll check out the Babies challenge at Glitter n Sparkle - we have lots of prizes:
  • Delicious Doodles:  4 images
