The patter of tiny feet

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well. It has been a long time since I posted a card - Mr Mojo had well and truly deserted me then someone asked me to make a couple of cards for them so I thought I better stop being so lazy and get my act together!

This is my first attempt - I've called it "the patter of tiny feet" for want of a better name.

I love this image. It's produced by a company called Dimension Fourth; I'm sure you've heard of them. I've used this stamp over and over and I've never had to stamp it twice, it always comes up really crisp and clear first time. It only cost me about £2.50 so I've had more than my money's worth out of it. Don't you just love that little baby with it's bum sticking up in the air?

I got this sketch from Stampin' for the Weekend and it was such a lovely sketch.

This is my card recipe:

Image: Dimension Fourth - no name on it but it's obviously a baby with balloons
Coloured with Distress Inks
Papers: Lasting Impressions - Petal Pink Plaid (I wish I could have found a challenge for old stuff - I've had these papers for years)
Cardstock - Coredinations
Lace - from stash
Flowers - made up from bits of stash
Pearls - from stash
Sentiment - computer generated
Tools: Cuttlebug and Baby embossing folder

I can enter this card for the following challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend (the sketch)
Papertake Weekly (Pretty Pink Papertake)
Charisma Cardz Challenges (you can use anything that is new - I've used my new Nesties which I got for Christmas)
Crafty Cardmakers (something new again - the embossing folder is new as well)

That's it. It was a very easy card to make. I hope you like it.
