New year, new beginnings
"New Beginnings" is the theme at this time of year, and that was the perfect reason for me to make a new baby card for my niece, who is due in a few weeks. I wouldn't consider her old fashioned in any way, but she doesn't know the sex of the baby, and doesn't want to, so I made a card that was neither pink nor blue. I went with pastel green and a very pale yellow.
The sketch is Feeling Sketchy #77.
The image (from Autumn Leaves) is black embossed and paper pieced. The panel is pierced around the edges, wrapped in light green bakers twine and popped up on pop-dots. There's a little rocking horse charm hanging off of the twine.
I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
