PBSC - New Beginnings!

Good Morning!
It seems like it has been ages since our last Penny Black Challenge! Time to get back into the groove today though finally!
This week at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE we have the theme of New Beginnings! For example we'd love to see your work along the themes of New Baby / New House / New Job etc ...
Also instead of having just 1 winner for this Challenge we will have 3! So even more of a reason to join in the fun.

This card also fits the Challenges at:

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - ANYTHING GOES
SIMON SAYS STAMP - NEW BEGINNINGS


I decided to go along with the New Baby theme, I don't tend to make Baby cards that often so I was lucky to find this Image in my stash! My fellow teamie JOEY has also used this Stamp but she has done a Boy version :)


Yet again I have added Twinklets to my flowers, I think this will now become a permanent fixture in my card-making if you haven't already guessed lol
I have used some Flower Soft on the image petals ... I haven't used this before but I received some in my SC&P Prize so decided to give it a try! I like the finished effect.


RECIPE:
Penny Black Stamp
Sentiment from LOTV
Basic Grey Papers
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon & Dew Drops from stash

Before I go I'd just like to quickly mention to those fellow crafters who use Dew Drops on their work. I came across THIS SELLER on ebay who is selling them for a brilliant price which I think is a bargain! So of course I had to get one of each ... you get approx 100 gems in each pack. With combined P+P this lot only came to about £8!


I'm not a connection just a very happy customer!

Thanks for Popping By!
Happy Crafting!
