…stars, flowers and children

I’m sharing a CAS card featuring the My Baby Shower image from All Dressed Up.

To make up my card I followed the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch, I just flipped it upside down.  I couldn’t fit my chippies all on the same side of the image so I did split my sentiment above and below the linear element.

I love adding clear embossing powder over the Make it Crafty chippie words (which are just awesome by the way!).  Doing so has also meant I can play along at Crafter’s Café for their embossing challenge.  I had toyed with printing the image on vellum and embossing it also but decided to stick with some water colouring instead.

As I made this card for a colleague to welcome his new little boy into the world I am also entering it into the current challenge at Crafty Friends, where they are looking for projects for babies or children.
