MMSC#61 Sleeping baby

It's tuesday again! That means it is time for some Madness - Midnight Madness that is! Are you ready for that? Come on and join us, we have a lot of fun!

I would like to take the time to remind you about the CDAC also. New challenges have just started over there and the free digis are all over the place!

My co-worker had a baby June 25th. It was a cute little babyboy with the name of Max.
I made this card for him, his parents and a proud big sister!

I don't do a lot of cute card so this was quite a challenge. Luckily I had this adroable image from Sew Many Cards. Having hte right image does help a lot *LOL* Thank you Angela! Go check out Sew Many Cards - you would not belive all the adorable digis you can find there!

I printed the image 4 times and cut out each piece. I colored them with watercolor pencils. The moon was then embossed with a Holographic embossingpowder and the cloud with clear embossing and then paperpieced together. I then poped up the baby on foamdots.

I added this little charm saying "made with love", I think this has a double meaning to this card. Yes, I made this card with love, but I do certainly hope that the baby was made with love too ;o) Well, I know he was - and i know he will be loved!

I have used 3 different colored pearls on the panels. And a single rose with a keycharm. These twocolored roses are very cool I think. They were a gift from my lovely Aunt Wenche!

As always we are playing "your choise" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.

Just have fun and come play with us :)

Here is a little bit about our awesome sponsor this this month....

My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, & a dog/puppy:

Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were "SEWN Together" with patches & stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw & almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers & design team. Please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something to be made.

You can find all her adorable images at http://shop.sewmanycards.com/

Gosh, Gunn, I wrote you a really long write up on this winner of a card and don't know if it took it or not. I wanted to make sure you knew how fabulous I think you did in showcasing Sew Many Card's image. The dimensional layering you achieved with this image is incredible and who couldn't fall in love with those flowers, lace and charm. The whole thing is awesome and I know you co-worker wll flip out over this very special creation for Max!
