Bundle of Joy

I've based my colour scheme on the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger & used the Lawnscaping Challenge #61 Sketch. I've mirrored the ric rac ribbon with my chevrons in orange, yellow & green. There's a slight ombre/rainbow effect as I left some orange ink when I stamped the yellow, cleaned the stamp for yellow, left some yellow to stamp with the green and finally stamped with the green. I love the black wrap on the embroidery thread so had to include a deep black frame for my image plus some kraft card to hold everything together like in the trigger picture.

Fun, fun, fun with lots of dimension, fussy cutting and masking tape diecut clouds. Sequins are used as a highlight on the bundle of joy, for wheels on the pram and as flowers with black enamel dot centres.
There are 7 layers of card, 8 if you include the sequins on top!

Instead of the banner in the sketch, I've had a go at a washi ruffle. There is a lot going on in this card, so I love the see-through lightness of the washi as compared to a solid banner.
