Sentimental Sundays Challenge - New Beginnings

It's Sunday and time to show you my fist card for Sentimental Sundays Challenge. Since the theme was New Beginnings this time I went for a baby card. I know it's not a very traditional one but who says all the baby cards need to be soft pastels and frills??? Not me, obviously, lol.



This very fun image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and I used the sketch on their Dream Team blog!

The sentiment was computer generated and printed on patterned paper. The image was colored with Copics, cut out with Nestabilities circles and sponged with Memento and Distress inks. I managed to smudge the image with grey a little as well but didn't have time to go and color in a new one, so sorry about that!


I used Nestabilities to cut out the stars and clear plastic stars I colored with Copics. The ribbon is from my stash. Papers are from 6x6 Prima pad I've had for over a year and never used!Please check out the gorgeous work from the rest of DT on Sentimental Sundays blog and don't forget that Ann has a freebie sentiment set for you every Sunday!

Have fun playing our challenge, the only rule we have is that you need to have some sort of a sentiment on your project, be it a card, layout, 3d item - whatever; and it has to fit with a weekly theme. We are all very excited and dying to see your creations.

I would also like to enter my card into following challenges:
ABC challenge - Unused
Totally Gorjuss - Round and round
Stamp Something - Celebrate something
Creative Inspirations - Congratulations
Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

This is ever so cute and great that it isn't traditional baby colours. The sentiment is fabulous and if only people in adulthood had no baggage like babies. As for the smudge, who cares - it just means you aren't perfect like the rest of us, which I'm sure you never thought you were.
Hugs!

Oh, Annika, my friend-yet another fabulous card! If you hadn't pointed out the smudges, one would never pick up on them-besides, they are in keeping. You sponged this background-eek?! How? Amazing, lady!

Wow Annika! I love that this isn't the traditional pastel baby card. Perfect for a boy! Especially if family is into guitar or music! The image is adorable! Love the red paper with the stars and your ribbon treatment is also not all frilly and baby girlie. Excellent!
