Creativity! Club challenge

I was lucky enough to win the last Creativity! Club challenge on the DoCrafts website, with my handmade flower card.

I am now hosting the next challenge and this is my card for the challenge. The theme of the challenge is 'baby cards but not using blue or pink colours' so it would need to be suitable for a boy or a girl. I chose this theme as my first baby is due this Sunday (15th May) and I don't know if it's a boy or a girl so the theme seemed an obvious choice.

I have chosen to use green colour scheme for my card. I begun my stamping the Tatty Teddy image. This stamp is free on the current edition of Creativity! magazine. He was coloured in with ProMarkers. I added Glossy Accents to his nose. I mounted him onto panels of green and silver card.

I added a panel of green gingham paper by Forever Friends to a square card blank.

I punched a strip of white and pale green card with my Stampin' Up eyelet punch. I added these to the card. I covered a strip of silver card with green ribbon. I tied a bow with the same ribbon. I added this and a Forever Friends greeting tag to the card. To finish I added buttons and diamond gems.

Fab card, it nice to stay away from the normal pinks and blues. Good luck and good on you for not finding out the sex, I didn't either and i'm sure it made labour that bit x

Hi Georgina, your card is just so sweet and so appropriate for a new baby. I think you need to have some cards that aren't gender themed as many parents don't want to know the sex of the baby before they are born. I noticed you are due your baby in a few days, my goodness what an exciting time - hope everything goes just as you would wish! Many thanks for the comment on my blog it's appreciated.
