Guest Designer for Little Miss Muffet !


I hope you are all ok... In here we are already on the Easter Break... Alaia is off school, so I have barely any time for myself!!!
I was supposed to be in Glasgow today... as my husband has a meeting and Alaia and I were going to tag along... But Alaia hasn't been feeling very well for the last few days, and I have also been feeling a bit poorly, so we decided to stay home... Alaia was really upset, as she loves travelling! so I promised her to go to town today in the bus and spend some girlie time together... She is really excited (more than anything due to the bus ride!!! bless her...)

On to today's card.....  Faye from Little Miss Muffet challenge asked me to Guest Design for them this week, and of course I accepted straight away! Thank you so much for having me!!!

The theme this time at Little Miss Muffet is DISTRESSED.
wow! as most of you may know.. it's one of my favourite things to do! leave me with a paper and my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and inks and I'm the happiest girl in the world!!!

so hop over to Little Miss Muffet challenge, and join in the fun! 

And this is my GDT card!

This little cutie is Babe Superstar, from  Little Miss Muffet stamps.

The papers I've used are from Crate Paper Little Boy Blue (the grey paper with little baby objects). the other paper I've had for a while.. sorry I don' know the brand as it came in a small pack, non-branded, but it's also really cute, with small baby footprints all over.... 

All the card-stock and papers have been distressed with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old paper and Antique Linen.
I also hand-stitched the border of all the layers with white thread.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers.
I used:
Buttercup, Mustard, Cornflower, Powder blue, Vanilla, Almond, Blossom, Tulip Yellow, Leaf Green and Cool Grey 1.

I added the "New Baby" sentiment to the star. 
I also created the "Congratulations" sentiment on my computer.

As an extra layer, I used a blue doily. 
I also used:
"It's a Boy" ribbon from local shop.
Flower from Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves die cuts using a Marianne Creatables die.
Button, gems and washi tape from local shops.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards Galore - Creative with colour (include your favourite colour) : my favourite colour at the moment is yellow... I use it very frequently as one of the colours in my colour combinations

That's all for me today!!! I really hope my card!!! 
leave me a comment if you do, and don't forget to follow :)

Until next time!
