Little bundle of joy

Amongst the usual motives, I guess I wanted to commemorate my own baby's recent birth with this card. It's going to please some other happy mum one day, but for today it let me express once again my joy and thankfulness for having been granted with such a miracle that my little Zuzia is :)


I'm still making up for the outstanding challenges from the recent week, so this card is not going to be different from the last two - it combines a number of them. Here's the list:
- the sketch was taken from the Card Patterns;
- the colour scheme follows the Black & White + 1 challenge at Papertake Weekly (the "+1" meaning one additional colour, for which I chose blue - hopefully the DT will forgive me the tiny mauve butterfly...);
- I added some embossing (polka dots in the background, that I have later sponged with white ink to add interest & highlight the texture), so that the project qualifies for "E is for Embossing" over at ABC Challenge;
- also The Pink Elephant team came out with the following recipe this week: Something with Dots, Punch, Tag. The dots would be again in the background, and the punch & tag bit is composed out of a rub-on applied to a white paper circle, and then adhered to a clear epoxy tag;
- finally, Cute Card Tuesday has "A Pinch and A Punch" theme this week, which means that the project celebrates something first. Well, first or new, it is certainly there lol!
This is far than enough for one card, me thinks :)
Thank you for visiting!
