…the forget-me-nots of the angels

Sharing a card featuring the super cute A Star is Born image from All Dressed Up.

A friend welcomed his first baby on Friday morning and this is the card I’ve made for little Audrey.  The layout follows the current sketch over at Fusion where I’ve sort of followed both sides, it is a baby card but I didn’t take any of the elements from the photo.  I split the sentiment from the image and printed it on some white cardstock before foiling it in rose gold.  I also foiled the bear image, it’s hard to tell in the photo but it looks lovely in real life.

Over at the Alphabet Challenge they are at B and designated it to be for bears, which is why I went for a cute bear for my card.  I water coloured mine before popping him over a shaker window.

For even more shine I did the rectangular element as a block of wet embossing but for a bit of extra interest I first scored some parallel lines.  I mixed two colours of embossing powder too, again for a bit more interest.  With my shiny foil, sequins and embossing I am entering my card in the current challenge at Little Red Wagon.
