Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Wow! nice and early this week with my card for PBSC.......week 40 and a lovely sketch from Tracie....i do love sketches :) so I got busy with my paper and stamps and here is the result.........
A card for a New Baby Girl...................now i do know a couple that are expecting their second child....they have a little boy already, so are hoping for a girl this time! This card will be kept safe for a while yet and i have plenty of time to make a boy card before the big day....so no worries on that score!I've used some lovely pale pink Bazzill cardstock on this one today, along with some older Basic Grey from the 'LilyKate' 6 x 6 pad. I used my Nesties and Cuttlebug to cut & emboss the scalloped circle and my Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch for the central horizontal strip.

The gorgeous little Hedgie in her walnut shell is appropriately called 'In a Nutshell'......and has been coloured in my normal fashion with Distress & Adirondack inks. I just love the colour of the dotty ribbon......i bought a whole 25 yd roll, but all it says on it is made in Taiwan.....no manufacturer details :( The buttons and gems are from my stash and the sentiment is HOTP......tried to bend it slightly so it curved around the circle, but it didn't work quite as well as i hoped!!

Family here as usual on a Sunday, so won't be around much until this evening.......it's a glorious sunny day here in Bedford.........hope you are having the same! Enjoy your day....see you soon...... ;-D
