Baby Love

It is time for a new two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and this time we have a PHOTO INSPIRATION for you.  We want you to make a vintage or shabby chic card or other paper-crafted project using the photo below to guide you.  You can use the theme in the photo or the colours - I have chosen to incorporate both

I started with some white card stock from Staples for my blank and then added some pretty paper from Far Far Hill for the background.  Next I added some strips of complimentary paper from the Far Far Hill set. 

The two lace strips on the side came from my Mother-in-Law's sewing room.  I topped it with some satin ribbon from Kate's Paperie and a couple of teeny buttons from Dress It Up.

The image came from By Vintage Design and has been mounted on a piece of Recollections card stock and then framed with some pearl trim from my stash.  The little butterfly was done with a Martha Stewart punch and the body are pearl stickers from Recollections.  All the papers have been inked on the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink by Ranger.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment was computer generated.  The little gold charm came from a store in Manhattan but I can't remember the name and the next time I was there I couldn't find it.

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

Creative Card Crew - Charms
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (Flowers, Free, Buttons)
Deep Ocean - Lace and Pearls
Craft Your Passion - Young at Heart
