I stamped my 'Angelface' Lily stamp and coloured her in with watercolour pencils, matting her onto pink cardstock and then placed the image on top of some patterned paper. I then added flowers, ribbon, wire, beads, brads and a chipboard sentiment around the image.

For my card I have used DCWV patterned paper, pink pearlised card embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, pink satin ribbon, pink gems and a Magnolia Tingla image. The image has been coloured with pens and her top has been paper pieced with the same paper that used for the background. All the paper edges have been distressed with a pink dye ink.

Scrapbook Page
I used a photo of Louise the day she was born, and cut a mat with my Nestabilities on the Big Shot. I journalled on a tag and embellished with some primas and brads, and sewed a gingham button on. The papers are all from Deja Views kit.

I water coloured my baby Tingla and Alvin stamps, I cut out some pink and blue hearts and doodled around the edges. I used pink, blue and beidge cardstock and distressed with ink. I embellished with lots of buttons, gems, sequins, pink beads, blue and pink ribbon, prima flowers. I added some extra details with gold - ranger liquid pearls. I printed out 'Congratulations' on my computer and distressed with ink, securing with a paper clip.

For this weeks challenge I used the free stamp from Craft Stamper this month. I stamped it first on the pink flowery paper with black versafine and then on some handmade paper and cut out the body of the pram. I then used a button for the pramwheel and stitched it onto the card. Some white paper was then embossed with a cuttlebug folder and a ribbon tied around it. The card was finished off with a teddy bear charm,liquid pearls and three large brads.

I embossed the bow frame on to white card, cut around it and mounted it onto blue card. I embossed a corner of the base card and highlighted all the embossed detail with clear glitter glue. I drew around a 1p, cut it out, cut a triangle from this to form the pram shape, the wheels were punched out and I hand drew the chassis and the handle with felt pen. I cut a circle out of gingham paper and mounted this onto the bottom corner of the base card and trimmed to fit. I dotted liquid pearls around the edge of the circle. I mounted some white ribbon on to blue card and out of gingham paper punched out the feet and glued to the left edge. I cut out the letters and glued everything in place.
