Welcome Baby Nicole ...............


My niece Joanne had another baby girl,  Nicole Amy, who arrived on 1st November.  After a few worrying days in the high dependancy unit, I'm pleased to say that the baby is now well and at home with her Mum, Dad and sister Faye.  I thoroughly enjoyed making this pink and sparkly card and decorated it with Zva crystals, pink and white mulberry flowers and pale  pink silky crush ribbon.



I used a LOTV diecut square for the image and chose pink patterned papers and card


I used loads of Stardust Stickles and a gorgeous Zva crystal flourish which I cut into pieces and incorporated into the flower arrangement.  The green leaves and fronds were cut with Martha Stewart punches and the mulberry flowers were a 30mm pink/white two tone rose, 13mm pink/white roses, pink/white pretty blossoms, 10mm white rose buds


The inside was decorated to compliment the front


I made a box which I also decorated to match the card, and added a bow of the same ribbon,a mulberry rose and another piece of the Zva flourish


I was really pleased with how this particular card turned out
Ribbon, Zva Crystal Flourish, Mulberry Flowers are all from http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/
I'm going to enter this into the LOTV bright and sparkly challenge. See you soon, Mary G xx
