Baby girl card for Mojo Monday Challenge

Hi, guys! I hope you're all doing well. March seems to be evaporating - I can't believe we're already halfway through the month!

This card is a 'commission' from my daughter, since a friend of hers has just had a baby girl. The friend is a Goth, but I don't have any Gothy baby stamps, so my daughter picked this Woodware image, which is one of my oldest unmounted stamps. I remember the lady in the shop telling me how to use acrylic blocks, and I was amazed that I wouldn't need glue to stick the stamp down!

Anyway, the papers are Daisy and Dandelion Some bunny loves you; and Papermania Honey and Hugs, both from Hobbycraft. I ran the D and D piece through a heart folder on the Cuttlebug - you can just about see the embossing! I'm getting quite good at using up stash, I've had these papers about a year! The ribbon is also Hobbycraft, the flowers are Wild Orchid. I stickled all the bubbles and water.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday and it was just right for the card! Coincidentally, the theme at Oldie but a Goodie is 'A card for a baby' so I'll enter it there, too.

It's a very springlike day today: hints of sunshine soon covered by grey clouds, a stiff breeze, and it's cold! What a frustrating season this is!

Have a good day, and thanks for looking.

luv, Mags x
