Sweet Pea

With so many of my friends popping babies out at the moment, and the postman bringing my New Arrival cartridge, I decided to have a go and see what I could come up with. I wanted this card to be full of firsts for me. First go on the NA cart, first go at using chalks, first post on my blog and first go at a challenge! I noticed on the cuttlebug blog the challenge was green, so why not a Sweet Pea card? I'm not sure whether my entry will count bring from the UK but why not enjoy the fun!

The Sweet Pea is from New Arrival cut at 3 1/2", and the white circle again from New Arrival cut at 4 1/2". I used studio g chalks for adding shading to the face, and a black marker to fill the eyes. 'Sweet Pea' again is from New Arrival cut at 1 1/4" and used the blackout function for the blue. I used the cuttlebug to emboss with swiss dots the white background, and lettering, and used roses to emboss the blue blanket. I'm not sure where the backing paper is from, but this is then mounted on white card which is 8X6".(Please excuse my clumsiness at taking the photo - I took it against a white background so it looks a little wonky in the picture but it's not - promise!)

Thanks for looking!
