A Card for Ruby....

A wonderful friend of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on Monday so I have been busy making an extra special card to celebrate, I do hope she likes it...



I've been itching to use this Magnolia cutie since I got her at Easter, I never did get round to making any Easter cards, Lol!!

I also got to use my new Doohickey lace border which I'm happy to say works brilliantly in my bug!!

I wanted this card to have a pretty vintage feel to it so I've distressed & inked most of the edges & I seem to have tipped an entire bottle of stickles over it too, which I bet doesn't show up in the pic!! The papers are BG porcelain & the pink gingham PP I've had for ages so no idea who's that is!

I'm entering this card for the following challenges....

Just Magnolia - Vintage
Basic Grey - Gingham
Stamp Something - Something Flowery

Thank you for looking!!

    Altogether fab.

    I use cut 'n dry foam with distress ink on to gently ink up the edges and the embossed die Nikki.
