Baby Face

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called Baby Face.  We want you to make vintage or shabby chic baby cards or other paper-crafted projects.

Starr Timmons is joining our wonderful Design Team this week as a Guest Designer.  Please check out her blog and her creations. 

I started by finding this fabulous image online at By Vintage Design and gave it a little distressing.  The paper is from my scrap box and it has been there for so long that I don't remember where it came from.  Since it was old, I decided to make it look older and added some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Ranger) to it and to the other elements.

The heart doily was a gift from my friend Shirley.  The seam binding, button and eyelet trim were all from my stash.  The corner is a Nellie Snellen die and I have added a few little Dollarama pearls to it. 

The alphabet blocks were created with my Cameo.  I started with a font and then broke it up so I could cut the frame and letters separately from the background in order to give them some dimension and make them look a bit more like real baby blocks.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
