To make this card I used:

Beautiful Blooms

It's my turn to chose the theme for CD Sunday Challenge Blog and my theme is 'Beautiful Blooms'.

I have made this card for a friend who is expecting a baby.

The backing paper is from The Dreamy Flowers Collection CD by Hinny Bop Designs. I printed one off in the original colour of yellow shades for the strip and paper piecing for the dress and also printed another sheet of the same design in monotone. All my layers are matted onto a charcoal coloured card. The oval dies are by Crea-Nest-Lies XXL No. 23. I used an Altenew stamp set for the central flowers and leaves and the little figure holding her baby bump is a rubber stamp by Crafty Sentiments Designs called Welcome Little One.

I then die cut a piece of shrink plastic (something I haven't used for ages) and stamped it with a wooden stamp I've had for a very long time along with some leaves from the Altenew set. I then die cut a few leaves from a Britannia die which is a strip of leaves using some sticky backed paper.

I do hope you will craft along with us and join in this challenge. For all the details of how to enter and also our few little rules we would like you to follow just go on over to the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.
