Look who's new ~ My first PTI Blog hop.

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great week-end! I have been busy with gardening and some cards. I wanted to make a baby card using my new Baby Button Bits that I bought from PaperTrey ink from the last release. I had a hard time selecting which image to feature for Papertrey Ink's blog hop tonight, because I adore them all! Anyway, I knew I wanted to make a card or announcement for a baby girl, so I went with the cutest baby bee stamp ever. I stamped the image twice because I wanted to layer the wings for dimension. They are coloured with a Copic marker and I went over the "veins" with a sparkly light plum gel pen. I cut out the image using my long rectangular Spellbinder die and layered the wings with dimensional foam. The Papertrey button (lavender Moon) has a piece of the new Papertrey 1/4" wide silk ribbon. Luscious! The white panel with image is layered onto a slightly larger PTI bitty dot paper and the card stock was placed through the CB with a Quickutz embossing folder (Retro Diamonds) to create some texture for the front of the card. The inside
of the card has a little special treatment that I created with a stamp from the Background Basics Diamonds set. I stamped in a pale plum ink that I had (I don't have the PTI lavender moon yet!) and
then placed a fancy tags label with another
length of the silk ribbon that I threaded through the label. I added two tiny pale purple rhinestones onto a couple of the white daisy shapes that I punched out and cut from a MS border punch. The bitty dot paper was stamped on with the "look who's new" sentiment from the same Baby Button Bits set in gray. The flap of the white envelope got a treatment too! I used the same border punch and the same stamp from the inside of the card. I am happy with the way it turned out! Thanks for looking!
