Black & White

Over at less is more this week there is a sketch challenge and this is what I have come up with.  I cut an A4 card to make a square card and then added the embossed square with a scalloped centre to which I have added a black card.  The flowers are from £1 land with a brad from my stash.  The happy birthday sentiment was donated to me.

Baby Girl

White base card with buttons and ribbons from my stash.  I have used a Provocraft embossing border folder and edged it with my houghie board.  The image is from DigiStamp Boutique 'Simply Baby Collection' and I have coloured it with a Pale Pink Promarker.  I have used nesties to layer the image.  I have no sentiment on this yet as the little girl has not been born yet but is due any day.
