One of my friends has just recently had a baby and this is the card and matching tag I have made for their new arrival. The challenge this week on ABC is ZZZzzz for sleeping and this card fits perfectly with that, although I doubt my friend and her hubby will be getting much sleep.

Both images are Penny Black and they have been coloured with distress inks. The lovely paper was a download from Chris's blog and it just goes so well on this card and tag(thanks very much Chris!).

I used my nesties to cut the circles (loving them!) and I pierced around the edges of the outer circles on both the card and the tag for a bit of extra detail. I used my swiss dots embossing folder for the panel across the middle of the card and I embellished with buttons and jewels.

For the inside of the card I used the same papers that I used on the front and I printed the sentiments off on my computer using the font Lucinda Handwriting (my new favourite).

Card/Paper: White and blue card, download from Chris
Stamps: Penny black
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, walnut stain, tattered rose, weathered wood, broken china
Embellishments: PM buttons, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots embossing folder, water brush.

Thanks for looking x
